Join us for a high-impact action-based workshop, looking at everything our institution isn't doing when it comes to effectively, transformationally, and sustainably institutionalizing DEI, anti-oppressive, and decolonial practices in higher education.

The truth is, historically, universities omit and bypass the economic component to decolonial work and reinforce the cycle of unsustainability, co-opting, generational poverty, burnout culture, tokenism, slacktivism, and operational inefficiency of the work.
As such, our institutional decolonial practices tend to focus on theories rather than scalable, sustainable, and high-value socioeconomic impact and development for and by disenfranchised Peoples.

In this session, Ches, host and decolonial DEI expert, will introduce their proprietary action-based framework for us so that, together, we may see how decolonization is more than changing and updating our decolonial, EDI trainings, curriculum, canons, and mandatory reading lists. 

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
