Diversity Awareness Workshop

Diversity Awareness Workshops

The first of our two-day diversity workshops is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, August 26 - 27, 2021 from 8:30am - 5:00pm, with more sessions planned in fall, winter, and spring. We are planning for these sessions to be in-person, following University guidelines and protocols in response to COVID.  If selected, we ask participants to comply with the guidelines. 

If you are interested in participating in or would like to nominate a colleague for one of our sessions, please complete the online Participant Interest Form. 

Space is limited, so please respond by August 6, 2021 in order to be considered. If selected, participants will receive a confirmation letter with additional information; those not selected this year will be notified and their names will be placed on the waiting list, and they will receive priority for future sessions. At this time we are only able to consider participants who have not attended the workshop in previous years. 

If you have any questions, please contact Sunny Dosanjh at or at (530) 754‑0610.

Participant Testimonials

"This was an awesome experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to challenge their own personal status quo. There is no way you can look at things the same after this workshop!” – Spring 2019

“This should be a mandatory course for every career UCD employee” – Winter 2019

“I loved this training. As the day got nearer I was dreading the time away from my work (as I am so behind), but I thought this was such a great experience. We are so intellectual and it was nice to have an opportunity to really connect with others, and many who I would not ever have met otherwise. Thank you so much for this great experience.” – Fall 2018
