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.

Inclusive Marketing strives to create a visual reality that is more representative of our real world demographics. It strives to acknowledge our various identities, differences, and histories while also finding ways to connect through shared experience and humanity. In this session, participants will learn about some of the tools, strategies, and the methods used to create effective inclusive marketing campaigns, and how they can be applied with just about any interaction we have in our day-to-day lives. 

Whether you are creating promotional materials for a program or event, leading a committee or team, recruiting future students or staff, or trying to engage a classroom full of diverse perspectives, this session hopes to equip participants with an increased awareness and the skills needed to promote and deliver a unified message which values diversity and inclusion at the University of Iowa. 

Faculty and Staff from all different areas of expertise are encouraged to attend.
