Virtual Discussions

Join us in our Virtual Discussions!

We will be hosting various virtual discussion opportunities. Each week will focus on a different topic and provide various medium options to engage. Available options include engaging with one of our listening, reading, or viewing groups. The topics include: ability, class/socioeconomic status, gender/gender expression, race, and sexuality/sexual orientation.
 
Participants will need to review the specific podcast episode, article, or video clip prior to attending. All podcasts, articles, and videos can be listened to, read, or watched in under 60 minutes. Links to materials are included below. These sessions are eligible to be used in the BUILD Passport to get credit toward your BUILD certificate.
 
No registration is necessary, but to gain entry you will need to log into uiowa.zoom.us using your HawkID and insert the associated Meeting ID from below. If you are already logged in, feel free to click on the associated Zoom link below. 
 
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events.
