Operationalizing DEI Webinar Series: Defining DEI Change
Higher education professionals across the country are working to improve student outcomes through diversity, equity, and inclusion interventions, but there are often complex challenges to meaningful progress. The Washington Center is pleased to partner with Crucial Shift Consulting to bring you a series of virtual panel discussions with recognized leaders to delve into the practical implications of managing DEI change in the classroom and across the institution.
This session will explore what paradigm shifts may be needed to understand and advance change on campus, provide an overview of what we mean by capacity to change and discuss practical challenges of implementing DEI change.
