Inclusive Excellence Webinar: The Cheetah & the Wolf

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:45pm

Location: Library Fishbowl (LIB 209)

Racist messages, homophobic tweets, Confederate monument challenges, controversial speakers, confrontations with campus law enforcement, conservative boards and political dynamics, the impact of hip-hop culture on white students who have lived racially homogeneous lives, and a rising tide of student unrest, are all ingredients that are shaping the perfect storm dynamics of our campus communities.

Please join Dr. Damon A. Williams, Chief Catalyst, researcher, and scholar from the Center for Strategic Diversity Leadership & Social Innovation, and the University of Wisconsin's Equity & Inclusion (WEI) Laboratory, as he talks about the shifting energy on our campuses and the need for leaders to have a wolf, and not cheetah-like response to the inevitable crisis dynamics that you will face at your institution.

Some of the topics that will be covered during the webinar include:

  • CRISIS ready framework
  • Free Speech & Inclusive Community Planning meeting best practices
  • Knowing who to put on your response teams
  • Empowering allies and readying students & diversity champions
  • Creating evidence based diversity and inclusion educational programs for students, faculty, and staff that create a more inclusive campus community.
