The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty and staff to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.

This introductory workshop will allow participants to understand the importance of diversity and inclusion as core values of the university. Participants will explore and reflect on the role of identity in their personal and professional experiences. This session will also outline the relevant resources and opportunities on campus. For those taking BUILD courses to obtain a certificate, this session should be taken first.
