It's Not Appreciation: It's Cultural Appropriation
Just Words: Language, Microaggressions, & Morale
Engaging Oppression & Whiteness in Education

What Bias? Implicit Bias
Lived Experiences of Trans* People

This eye-opening presentation will be the catalyst to keeping inclusiveness in the forefront of my mind in every interaction with my students.Faculty Member, Dixie State University
Everything we discussed during your two days here has already had a huge impact on how I see the society which I am a member.Zachary, Florida State University
William Ward once said, “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it”…therefore, I want to thank you for inspiring me.Elizabeth, University of Utah
Taking part of this was extremely eye-opening. I now recognize areas that I am responsible for speaking up and helping those who may not be as privileged as me.Melissa, UMass Boston
In the past, I associated privilege with a negative connotation but now I see it as a way to understand change for the better.Robert, University of North Carolina-Greensboro
I anticipated that ‘impact’ would resonate with our students and faculty at the moment; however, I never imagined that it would be a centering experience for our community.Dr. Forrester, Univeristy of Massachusetts-Boston
This experience taught me that everyone has their own personal story. You just can’t “judge a book by its cover”!Adminstrator, Indiana State University
I feel like I finally understand my privilege as a white male. It’s so enlightening.Marc, St. Jude Hospital
