Personal testimonials

  • "I learned so much and am trying to put it into practice. As a cis-gendered white male, the active bystander information was very helpful and challenging. I am learning to use techniques outlined to challenge prejudiced comments that I hear."
  • "I enjoyed participating in the D&I Champion program, as it provided me with tools and resources on a variety of diversity topics. I learned a lot and feel I have the knowledge to share, teach, and start conversations with others."
  • "Thanks to the D&I team for bringing awareness to intersectional experiences in our campus environment. Institutions of learning must not only acknowledge demographic disparities, but be willing to challenge inequities with thoughtful approaches."
