We are inviting you to participate in a day-long training on Wednesday, September 25 that will be facilitated by nationally recognized trainer and speaker, Dr. Kathy Obear. Dr. Obear is the founder and president of the Center for Transformation and Change, and is known as an expert in helping to establish more socially just environments where everyone feels valued and respected. More about Dr. Obear can be found here.
Our training will focus on helping participants become better mentors and advisors to students – particularly in supporting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) students who are underrepresented minorities, women, first generation, and PELL-grant status.
The training is sponsored by CIRCLE, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the Division of Student Affairs. In addition, partial support is being provided through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), through Washington University’s Inclusive Excellence Initiative grant – a 5 year grant that was awarded to the University in 2017. For more information about the grant, please see the CIRCLE Web site.
Space is limited at this training which will take place in Risa Commons from 9am – 3pm (lunch included) on Wednesday, September 25. To reserve your space, please complete this form by Friday, August 30th.
