UNC Greensboro’s University Libraries is pleased to partner with the Racial Equity Institute (REI) to host an annual series of award-winning workshops on understanding racial equity issues. REI, an alliance of trainers, organizers and leaders are devoted to advancing racial equity in society.
The workshop methodology REI uses is renowned as a profoundly illuminating and meaningful experience for attendees, all of whom come away with a greatly increased understanding of racial equity and justice. By working with REI, the University Libraries seeks to make a difference in raising the regional awareness and comprehension of racial justice, equity and historical issues in race relations.
The first workshop in the series, Phase I, will be held on Saturday – Sunday, September 21-22, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the Dail Room of the Elliott University Center, located on the campus of UNCG. The workshop is open to registration by UNCG faculty, staff, students and the general public at the listed prices subject to availability. REI seeks to balance the ethnic composition of workshop attendees, and therefore reserves the right to review the mix of attendees attending each particular workshop for this purpose.
The REI Phase I Workshop is designed to help individuals that want to proactively understand and address racism, both within organizations and throughout society more broadly. The two-day workshop provides a foundational vocabulary and definitions for understanding racism, historical factors and talking points with the goal of eliminating racial and ethnic disparities and producing equitable outcomes.
PLEASE NOTE: The Phase I workshop is two days, held over a weekend. Registrants must commit to attending both days of the workshop. For more information or questions, contact Jennifer Hohn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
