and there’s just over one week to go before the first class! So, if your
small- to medium-size organization needs help planning a DEIA program or
initiative, we encourage you to sign up now. This eight-week course, with
weekly classes at 11.30am-1.00pm ET (Canada/US) from September 17 to
November 5, will help organize your thinking by addressing questions such
as: What needs to be considered? What will help lower the barriers to
inclusion? Who needs to be involved? How will you measure progress? And
more …

territory and homelands of the Luiseño/Payómkawichum people). She will be
joined by guest lecturers including Dr. Kawanna Bright, East Carolina
University; Nikhat J. Ghouse, American University; Twanna Hodge, University
of Florida; Lauren Magnuson, California State University - San Marcos; Alanna
Aiko Moore, Subject Specialist, Sociology, Ethnic Studies, and Gender
