Request a Workshop

The Diversity and Equity Center offers a variety of learning opportunities. Our workshops are peer-led and are intended to serve students at Central Washington University with a variety of unique topic areas. Workshops are offered throughout each quarter at a variety of designated times in collaboration with Wildcat Leadership Academy, through the Don't Cancel That Class initiative, and by request.

We are currently hosting our workshops virtually via Zoom. Below is the information on available workshops!

Workshops

Equity & Identity

Length: 60 minutes
This workshop opens the discussion about equity and its importance in society. Here, we set a foundation covering the basics of equity, activities that create growth and development, and an appreciation for inclusivity and one’s lived experiences. By defining equity, equality, and marginalization, we provide CWU with a better understanding about societal systems that influence our sense of power and privilege and acknowledge the importance of identity.


Safer Spaces

Length: 90 minute and 2 hour sessions offered
This workshop stems from the Safer Space initiative to understand the multi-faceted aspects of the LGBTQ+ community. Here, students will have the opportunity to participate in interactive exercises, discussions, and sustained dialogue that provide understanding about the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, students will get a chance to increase their understanding about the terminology, privilege, and social constructs of gender. By providing students with the necessary information and tools, we contribute to providing CWU with ways in which they can become better allies and promote an inclusive campus community.
