Dear Colleagues:

I ask for your assistance in sharing this information.

We invite you to participate in or nominate a faculty or staff colleague for the 2020-2021 Diversity Awareness Workshops sponsored by the Office of Campus Community Relations.

The Diversity Awareness Workshop was initiated in 1993. The goal of the workshop, which is a part of our Diversity Education Program, is to build awareness about the diversity of our campus community and engage in important conversations about ways of making our campus more inclusive and more welcoming. As our campus continues to grow, these types of important dialogues are more imperative to ensure that we continue to aspire towards an environment that is inclusive of our diversity. Since its inception in the early 1990s, more than a thousand campus community members have participated in the workshop. I hope that you will consider taking part in this great educational and community building opportunity.

The first of our two-day diversity workshops is scheduled this fall for Monday and Tuesday, November 16 and 17, 2020 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, with more sessions planned in winter and spring. 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 October 16, 2020 in order to be considered. We will send out notification letters in late October. 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 ssdosanjh@ucdavis.edu or at (530) 754‑0610.

Sincerely,

RAHIM REED, JD, MSW, MPA
