Dr. Deborah J. Walker is a multicultural and organizational development consultant skilled in the areas of assessment, strategic planning and change, process facilitation, community engagement, cooperative problem solving, and coaching. Her four-hour VISIONS sessions are designed to enhance the university's internal capacity to create an equitable campus community by introducing staff, faculty, and students to the Visions framework and common language, including guidelines for effective dialogue, target/non-target, modern "isms," and internalized oppression.

VISIONS workshop attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify previously unconscious biases and misinformation in themselves, in others, and in organizations
  • Communicate more effectively across difference
  • Recognize personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural barriers to inclusion
  • Understand the ongoing personal effects of historical and contemporary exclusion and oppression, for example, the effects of sexism on both men and women
  • Facilitate change in groups and organizations to create a supportive environment of inclusion


All individuals who supervise staff are required to complete this program once. If you aren’t sure whether or not you’ve attended this program previously, you may follow these instructions to view your past training completions.
