21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge

Faculty and staff are invited to join Human Resources and Intersections for a 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge, Jan. 18 to Feb. 15. 

The challenge — divided into four weeks, each with different themes, resources, and discussion questions — is designed to promote greater understanding of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity and create effective social justice habits by immersing participants in a daily exploration of inequity, injustice, and ways to implement change.
