Register Before it Sells Out: Second Annual ATD Equity Institute: February 18, 2020

Develop a deeper understanding of what equity means, what it looks like in practice, and how it is manifested or stifled on your campus.

During this interactive day-long institute, institutional teams will engage in learning opportunities and activities to develop a deeper understanding of what equity means, what it looks like in practice, and how it is manifested or stifled on their campuses. Teams will engage in conversations around equity challenges impeding the success of their students and brainstorm practical solutions that empower all members of the college community. Institutions boldly addressing their own equity challenges will share their strategies, obstacles, and outcomes. Teams will be challenged to engage with new tools to use in their own equity strategy.

By the end of the institute, teams will develop an equity vision that describes the experience they want for their incoming Fall 2020 students and leave with strategic and concrete next steps to implement when they return to campus to move their vision forward.

Breakfast and lunch are included. Registrants receive a 15% discount when attending both DREAM 2020 and the ATD Equity Institute. Register now!
