This workshop is intended for instructors interested in learning how to ethically and effectively teach about race, ethnicity, and inequality in predominantly white classrooms.

This workshop is designed to offer a framework and strategies to help prevent and address these issues as they arise. This workshop may of particular interest to instructors teaching R&E courses but is open to all. This workshop is sponsored by the School of Public Health Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program and counts toward 2 Continuing Professional Education credits.
