Description: **Please email if you want your name added to a waiting list. Building Inclusive Communities (BIC) Workshops are designed to provide a framework for participants to take personal responsibility for creating a truly engaged diverse and inclusive campus environment and to stay current with the diversity, equity and inclusion needs and issues of a changing population base and VCU community. Together we can develop a culturally informed VCU community that empowers each of us to strengthen communication and effectively address the needs of diverse groups. Goals for this 1-day workshop include: identifying historically marginalized and privileged group dynamics; learning to identify and avoid behavioral traps that contribute to cycles of inequity; and, creating a personal plan for changing inequitable behaviors and practices.
