Who We Are
By registration; Interested in an easily accessible tool to help assess and improve your school’s work related to racial and ethnic diversity? Jodi L. Porter, director of coordination at the Forum for Theological Exploration, will share the tool she developed in response to feedback from those schools that participated in the ATS Cultivating Educational Capacity Initiative. The tool incorporates leading-edge scholarship on diversity, emphasizes the values of diversity and justice, and moves beyond inclusion to belonging. Join us to learn more about how you might use this tool at your institution.
"The Diversity Imperative: An Organizational Improvement Tool for ATS Member Schools" is open to all leaders at ATS schools. The ATS Committee on Race and Ethnicity and the ATS Coordination Program for the Pathways for Tomorrow Initiative are hosting the webinar.
