Diversity Difference DII@FSE

We are pleased to announce the next workshop for students in the series as part of the Fulton Schools Diversity Difference program, funded by the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Initiative (DII). This series aims to showcase our diverse community and to support learning through workshops and experiences.

Implicit Bias and Microaggressions for Students
Friday, October 22, 2021

10–11 a.m.
Register to attend

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the topic of implicit bias and microaggressions by engaging in a thoughtful dialogue with the presenter. Implicit or unconscious bias refers to the automatic thoughts or attitudes that affect our everyday actions and decisions. Individuals develop associations over the course of a lifetime by way of life experience and influences from the media, news and society. Microaggressions are everyday verbal, non-verbal, behavioral, or environment slights, snubs, or insults (intentional and unintentional) that can communicate hostility or negativity towards marginalized groups.

Attendees will learn about the concepts and impact of implicit bias and microaggressions, gain an understanding of common occurrences of microaggressions, and will be encouraged to reflect on how their interactions affect interpersonal relationships with others in the academic and professional environment.

At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Define and summarize concepts of implicit bias and microaggressions.
  2. Review policies, processes and practices for evidence of possible bias.
  3. Implement strategies to overcome and minimize bias in the work and academic environment.

This workshop, presented by ASU’s Student Accessibility and Inclusive Learning Services (SAILS), will focus on increasing awareness of disability, equity, inclusion and universal design in support of students. As we build a culture of inclusion for students with disabilities, the university as a whole benefits. By participating in this training and dialogue, we can learn to become the culture expressed in the ASU Charter: “measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed.”

2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture: Canceling Student Debt is Anti-Racist (and Why We Must Do It), October 21

Posted by on Sep 29, 2021 in Diversity Difference, Events |

Join the Graduate College and noted educator, journalist and scholar, Andre M. Perry, for this year’s 2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture. Perry’s research focuses on race and structural inequality, education and economic inclusion. He will discuss how centering student debt policy around students of color would help to combat historic systemic racism that has prevented Black people and people of color from gaining the wealth they were denied for centuries. As a result, it is more difficult for Black Americans to pay back their student loans, acquire homes and start businesses. 

Following Perry’s lecture, he will sit down with special guest Battinto Batts Jr., dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, for a question and answer session to include questions from the audience. Questions for Perry can also be submitted in advance through your in-person or virtual registration.

2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture: Canceling Student Debt is Anti-Racist (and Why We Must Do It)
Thursday, October 21, 2021
4–5 p.m.
Attend the live stream or in-person (limited seating) at Old Main (MAIN) Carson Ballroom, Tempe campus [map]
