Why We Need To Do This Well
Diversity is a subject that is personal to us. Therefore, it is vital the community at Western Washington University authentically benefit, learn and have an honest voice in how diversity trainings are conducted. Assessment of WWU’s Equity and Inclusion Forum will be a collaborative process. By listening to the campus community, we can adapt and move forward in a way that is most valuable to us as university members and citizens of the globe.
As called upon by President Shepard, it is an absolute priority to promote a community of difference at Western and beyond. Assessment of such responsive diversity efforts will open the door for growth and strengthen the active voices that change minds. Help us get this right by giving us the input that will shape an inclusive and safe environment.
How You Can Be Involved
