LGBTQ Safe Zone: Phase I (BUILD credit approved) ( UI Health Care)

The LGBTQ Safe Zone Project is a campus-wide program that offers a visible message of inclusion, affirmation, and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people in the university community.Phase I introduces basic LGBTQ terms and concepts, helps participants develop an appreciation for the experiences of the LGBTQ people, and brings an overall awareness of LGBTQ issues. Participants will be encouraged to think about how they can create a more inclusive environment and will be prepared to provide resources to LGBTQ people. This is also a part of the BUILD series. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Diversity Resources in advance at 319-353-2388 or diversity-resources@uiowa.edu.

BUILD: Making the Paradigm Shift from "Diversity" to "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" (UI Health Care)

The session is a collaboration between the Office of the Provost, the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and University Human Resources. Within the session, participants will begin making the shift from diversity to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We will review tools, resources, and strategies for integrating DEI into unit plans. For units that do not have current DEI-related strategies to report, a FY19 action may include having a team of 2-3 individuals attend one of these workshops and return to the unit to facilitate unit discussions and planning. For units with current DEI-strategies, this session will provide tools and processes for advancing those initiatives. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Diversity Resources in advance at 319-353-2388 or diversity-resources@uiowa.edu
