This event is BUILD approved.

This model was developed by the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), an organization devoted to eliminating all forms of prejudice throughout the world. The training is highly interactive and is definitely not your typical “diversity training.” Participants will be prompted (to the extent each are comfortable) to engage in self-reflection and sharing, to practice talking about the messages we internalize about our own and others’ groups, to correct misinformation through “caucus” sessions, to learn through the sharing of personal stories and experiences, and to begin practicing how to respond to hurtful jokes, comments, and slurs.

Note:  Individuals who have already completed this workshop may email diversity@uiowa.edu to obtain credit towards the BUILD certificate.

Sign-up is available for employees through Employee Self-Service/My Training. To locate certificate courses search for “NCBI” and a list of the courses will appear. If you are a student or community member and would like to attend, please email brianna-marcelo@uiowa.edu at least 1 week before the date of the training.
