Join the Conversation

The UA Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion offers numerous online workshops and webinars on timely, thought-provoking subjects.

This semester, the division is collaborating with the UA Counseling Center to again offer the series of webinars titled “Resilience and Empowerment Through Racially Challenging Times.” The series provides a conceptual framework to understand how race affects the overall experiences of racial minorities and how racial injustice and trauma contribute to minority mental health concerns.
