VISIONS: A component of our Cornerstones of Community professional development track | Human Resources

Thursday, January 20 at 9:00am to 12:15pm

Virtual Event

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 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 individuals of all genders
  • Facilitate change in groups and organizations to create a supportive environment of inclusion

VISIONS is a component of our Cornerstones of Community professional
development track and participation in this program is an expectation for all supervisors.

Registration is required and open to Staff and Faculty only.
