This workshop creates space to talk about the ways in which microaggressions impact individuals with or without knowing it. Through activities, discussions, and experiences, we shed light on how microaggressions affect individuals and communities, where they stem from, and how to approach them. With this, we contribute to CWU’s inclusive campus community by dismantling myths and misconceptions.
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.

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.
