NCBI: Leadership for Equity and Inclusion
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.
This course is eligible for BUILD credit. The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) certificate is an initiative of the Chief Diversity Office that gives UI faculty and staff the opportunity to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive campus environment. The certificate is earned by completing one core course and five electives. To learn more about the BUILD initiative and how to enroll visit: http://diversity.uiowa.edu/programs/build.
