Gain confidence in your ability to address identity-based conflicts in your classroom.
Faculty in the STEM disciplines can often feel unprepared to address identity-based conflict in the classroom because the themes are not embedded in the course content. Even those who want to have tough conversations regarding identity, bias, and privilege can feel inadequately equipped to facilitate a conversation when a conflict arises. You may be asking yourself: What if I say something wrong? What if I make things worse?
No matter the discipline, these crucial conversations are coming up in every learning space across higher ed and avoiding them is not an option. Every instructor can prepare to notice identity-based conflict and intervene to reduce harm. Join us for a highly interactive virtual workshop that provides a supportive space to learn about the types of conflict that can arise, and how to facilitate microinterventions to confront bias and create more equitable learning environments.

Understanding types of identity-based conflict
Learn about five types of identity-based challenges and how they might appear in your classroom:
- Implicit bias
Strategies to intervene, facilitate conversations, and reduce harm
After learning strategies to respond to identity-based conflicts in your classroom, you will have the opportunity to discuss experiences from your classes, ask questions, receive feedback, and prepare to intervene in future conflicts.
Who should attend?
The content will be tailored to faculty working in STEM fields who want to feel more prepared to address identity-based conflicts that arise in their classrooms. Faculty from other disciplines are welcome to join.
