“Fellowship Fridays” Support Sessions Begin Next Week

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

CTL is joining Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology Professor and member of Faculty Senate, to bring you Fellowship Fridays support sessions. Beginning Friday, June 19, all faculty members and teaching staff are invited to gather and share their experiences with teaching, learning, and advising in this strange new world. – we’ll trade ideas, advice, highs, lows, successes, and failures – or maybe we’ll just plain old vent. Most importantly, we will attempt to inoculate ourselves against one of the more insidious side effects of this pandemic – isolation. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or pour a glass of wine, and Zoom in to support your fellow instructors and work through this challenging time together.

*If Friday afternoons don’t work with your schedule, but you would still like to participate, reach out to Bridget or Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright, and they will contemplate adding other days/times in the future.

ZOOM Information (only accessible with an Augsburg email address)

Cost: $30 Suggested Donation
Level: Intermediate

Presenter: Tawanna Black, Center for Economic Inclusion

Building racially inclusive and equitable workplaces has become even more complex as we are now faced with the challenge of responding to the worsening economic and health disparities created by COVID-19 in many communities throughout the country. Employers can and should play an important role in inclusive recovery efforts, but must be equipped with data informed, market responsive solutions that center people of color. Tawanna Black, Founder and CEO of the Center for Economic Inclusion will facilitate this special Diversity Insights Digital Presentation sharing a framework for racially inclusive recovery for employers.
