Learn practical strategies to amplify the contributions and voices of underrepresented staff and faculty on your campus.

Every day, each of us has an opportunity to be an ally to underrepresented colleagues. Whether it’s small actions you take during meetings or significant policy conversations that you lead, there are many ways those with power and privilege can ensure that all voices and perspectives are heard on campus.

Join us online for this one-hour seminar, which will provide you with simple ways you can be an advocate for women and minorities on your campus. You’ll hear tips and strategies for supporting women and minorities in your one-on-one interactions so you can empower them directly to use their voice. You’ll also identify best practices for bolstering underrepresented voices during your team meetings. You will walk away with ideas for how to invite those in power to join you in the conversation around building advocacy into your policies and procedures.


Who Should Attend

This webcast is designed for anyone – especially women and leaders across campus – looking for easy yet effective solutions to help them visibly support and advocate for women and minorities in the workplace. If you’re looking for ways to empower and encourage the women you work with, this webcast is ideal for you.



Our expert instructor will teach you three ways to advocate for women and minorities on campus through the following channels:

  1. Your 1:1 Interactions
    Learn how mentors, the art of feedback, and “nudge” notes can help you create advocacy in your relationships with others.
  2. Your Team Interactions
    Learn how ground rules and “brag buddies” can change the dynamic of your team meetings and ensure that all voices are heard. You will participate in an activity that will help you gather ideas for creating inclusive meetings.
  3. Your Policies and Procedures
    Learn how to begin to implement advocacy efforts at the organizational level.
