The Learning & Development Team invites you to Tool UP with Ana Devlin Gauthier.
The LinkedIn Learning Coffee and Conversation is an opportunity to talk through the Building Collaborative Processes for Creativity and Growth content so far and the connections with our daily work. Bring your coffee, tea or water, and be prepared to learn and discuss in community.
Recent events and historical precedents in the U.S. bring our attention to racism in ways that motivate us to take action. As faculty and staff working at Amherst College, it is important both to understand and be prepared to do something about racism.
The goal of this advanced workshop is to consider antiracist approaches to put into practice with our work. Participants will focus on learning how to be antiracist rather than “not racist” as a personal and professional commitment towards eradicating racism and building a campus community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Upon participating in this workshop, participants will:
Know some of the approaches and techniques of antiracism
Create and execute individual plans committed to antiracism at the College
Join others who are personally and professionally committed to antiracism
Note: Participants are required to have attended Racism & Antiracism 2.0: Racism & Antiracism at Amherst to attend this workshop.
The L&D Team invites you to a live webinar presented by Care.com.
This year, the return to work and school is going to look — and feel — different than in year's past. Both parents and kids are going to be stressed and anxious about how to approach this "new normal".
