CUPA-HR National Virtual Town Hall – “Partners in Justice – We Will Not Be Silent!”

Date: Monday, June 22, 2020
Time: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual – REGISTER HERE

The nation is talking about race — specifically the systems in place that perpetuate racial inequalities and injustice, and the heavy toll it has taken on the Black community. As we seek to speak out and champion real change on our campuses and in our communities, it’s imperative that we take time to listen — especially to stories that emphasize how the racial divide exists and the challenges it creates for Black faculty, staff and students on our campuses. 

You’re invited to join us for a town hall discussion to hear voices from our higher ed HR community and identify what it means to move beyond existing DEI initiatives to create real systemic and cultural change at our colleges and universities. As higher ed HR, we are uniquely positioned to lead and support that change!

Time: 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Location: Zoom – REGISTER HERE

It’s a big mistake to ignore the elephant in the room. We all see the elephant and we make the mistake of pretending that it’s not there, or walk around it because of fear. We are in a time when we must communicate with empathy and address the pain and concerns of African American employees head on. Join Twana Harris for a webinar where we’ll discuss about race in the workplace and learn how having these conversations can enhance the trajectory of your company’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.
