REAL TALK is our comprehensive diversity education program. REAL stands for “Respect, Equity and Allyship for Leaders” and gradually introduces participants to key concepts of diversity education and identity exploration. REAL Talk is facilitated by Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Peer Educators and staff from Multicultural and Diversity Affairs. All D&I facilitators have gone through an intensive training to prepare for REAL Talk, as well as how to best educate attendees of each workshop.

The series begins with our Foundational Diversity Workshop video. Every participant will first watch this video to gain an understanding of diversity and inclusion and then further explore more advanced topics.
