The Dialogue Initiative team is available to provide trainings and workshops on a number of different topics to all members of the UIC community and off-campus partners. Recent workshops include: Facilitation Basics, Building Brave Spaces for Engaged Conversation, Introduction to Social Identities and Intersectionality, The Three Ds: Dialogue, Discussion and Debate, among others. Please contact Jessica Joslin for more information on these or any of the other trainings and workshops we offer.
We partnered with the Counseling Center to develop a workshop series called, Engaging Anti-Racism: Readings and Reflections on White Privilege. Through a combination of open and structured conversations, participants explore their relationship to White privilege and how they can engage in anti-racist practice in their own lives. We have offered this program five times since first piloting the series in Summer 2020.
