There have been a number of webinars and articles that talk through ideas/approaches to DEI work and cultivating belonging for students in a virtual world. This session is focused on moving from idea to practice. This interactive session is focused on providing a shared processing and problem solving space for Assistant/Associate Directors and Directors who work in cultural centers and/or DEI spaces on campus. Specifically, we will focus on advocacy and decision making, leadership and supervision, and programming and virtual community building.
