Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Bring Unlimited Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training to Your Campus

Create a more inclusive environment by upgrading your membership to give everyone on your campus access.

Hiring Managers
We’re starting a new higher ed-specific job board to help connect you to diverse candidates.

Diversity, equity and inclusion work has never been more important in higher education. Academic Impressions offers a comprehensive suite of best-in-class diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training and resources that you can put directly in the hands of your faculty and staff.

Our DEI training—which is higher education specific, interactive and action-oriented, and carefully designed with both academic and non-academic audiences in mind—emphasizes practical skill development around critical themes like:

  • Power and oppression: understanding personal bias and privilege, engaging in allyship and having courageous conversations
  • Intersecting identities related to race, gender, class, disability, and nationality
  • Inclusive pedagogy: building in-classroom dialogue and decolonizing syllabi
  • Diversifying the faculty and building stronger systems of support for BIPOC and women faculty
Give everyone - faculty, staff and students - access to the latest DEI resources with institutional membership.

Our Approach

Bring your team a robust suite of trainings that help all faculty and staff engage in personal development and skill building around diversity, equity and inclusion topics. We take a multi-faceted approach to this work that focuses on three components:

Education & awareness building.
What is this concept/topic all about? What are its historical origins? How does it show up in higher education today? Why is it important to understand and address it?

Self-reflection.
How do my own identity and life experiences shape the way I interact with this concept/topic? What is my role/responsibility regarding this topic? What do I think and feel about the topic at hand? What are some of my own personal biases that I need to be aware of?

Speak up, take action.
Committing to action. What can I do to be a better advocate/ally/contributor in this space? What are some practical steps I can commit to, within my role and sphere of influence, to act and contribute?

PARTNER WITH YOUR ACCOUNT MANAGER FOR ONGOING SUPPORT

Your Account Manager is your strategic partner dedicated to both maximizing membership adoption and ensuring its impact. We are invested in the success of your team and we customize our approach to your professional growth and development.

We understand that access to membership does not equal adoption, and adoption does not necessarily result in impact. Your Account Manager will collaborate with your team to ensure they engage with resources in a strategic manner, which will ultimately result in a lasting impact on their growth.

Access: At the start of the partnership, your Account Manager will work with you to plan launching membership resources to all assigned users. They will collaborate with you on a communication plan, conduct virtual open houses with your users, and ensure those with membership access have the resources they need to succeed.

Adoption: Throughout the course of your membership, your Account Manager will monitor usage and help identify professional development opportunities that will engage your team.

Impact: With the help of stakeholders, your Account Manager will deploy one or more impact surveys over the course of the membership term to help you understand what impact professional development has had on individuals. We measure satisfaction and gain an understanding of what your users have learned by engaging with Academic Impressions professional development opportunities.
