Skills Development Workshops

Attendance at the Cultural Competency for Personal, Organization, and Community Change workshop is encouraged but not required. Building on this workshop, every session we will have new practice scenarios to help participants develop skills to handle bias incidents, microaggressions, and discrimination that occur in STEM classrooms and workspaces. 

Spring 2023 Virtual Workshop dates TBD
