Antiracism Training for Faculty and Staff with the Perception Institute

Faculty and Staff have the opportunity to participate in antiracism training facilitated by consultants from the Perception Institute.  Their approach is informed from the mind science concepts related to cognitive psychology, social psychology, and neuroscience.

This training will take place on May 7, 11 AM to 2 PM CT with facilitators from the Perception Institute.

The Perception Institute works to support institutions in their efforts to advance equity and belonging and to understand how identity differences can lead to “othering.” They use a foundational “brick” that helps provide understanding on how belonging is practiced:

BBelonging. The feeling of being valued and seen.
RRespect. Being treated as an equal with perspectives and contributions
recognized.
I  – Investment. The contribution of funds through an equity lens.
CConversation. The ability to engage in communication around identity
difference.
KKindness. Treating all people with genuine concern

To register, contact Cindy Pickart (cindy.j.pickart@lawrence.edu). Sign up early. Each participant will receive a brief pre-workshop survey to help facilitators further customize our workshop.
