Online REAL Workshops

Keeping it REAL with PJ

The staff at Multicultural & Diversity Affairs knows that you may be looking for opportunities to expand your knowledge of yourself and the world around you. We will be capitalizing on our wildly successful REAL Workshops by creating new virtual conversations around expanded topics. REAL stands for (Respect, Equity, and Allyship for Leaders) and to date has served thousands of students and staff to date. Our virtual workshops will be hosted through digital platforms and provide students a place to share new knowledge. This weekly virtual roundtable discussion will create space for us to explore concepts and current trends related to inclusion efforts and diversity education. Join PJ Jones on Mondays and Wednesdays as we engage in meaningful dialogue around respect, equality, and allyship!
