Relevant to both faculty and graduate students, this workshop will focus on aspects of mentoring relationships among diverse members of the academic community. Issues of unconscious bias and common behavior that affects the environment will be discussed along with results from the NC State climate survey and NC State student experiences. Participants will also learn what it means to be an ally and discuss ways to increase diversity and inclusiveness in the Center, and in the academic community.

The highlight of the workshop will be a seminar followed by a discussion session presented by Karen Dace, Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Karen Dace is a powerful speaker on topics such as what faculty can do to become allies to faculty of color in the academy and how universities (and NSF centers like ASSIST) can be intentional, focused and connected to entities that can help with funding or expertise. She is editor of the collection of essays Unlikely Allies in the Academy: Women of Color and White Women in Conversation ( academy).
