The JEDI Health Cluster Alliance and UBC’s Equity and Inclusion office are excited to host SPEAK UP! Building a Respectful and Inclusive Workplace
October 6th from 12PM-1PM
This workshop is brought to you by the UBC Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office and the JEDI Health Cluster Alliance, which is comprised of 12 research excellence clusters who contribute to health research.
The goal of the JEDI Alliance is to develop the inclusion skills of our members. As such, we’ve partnered with the University of British Columbia’s Equity & Inclusion Office to facilitate this inaugural event. Although the UBC community will be a focal point of conversation for this event the skills and lessons conveyed within the workshop will translate to communities beyond UBC. We welcome anyone interested in learning how to foster an inclusive and respectful working environment to attend.
Interested to learn how to build an inclusive and respectful working environment? Curious about what to say when somebody makes an inappropriate comment? Want to know how to handle situations that are embarrassing at work? In this workshop, attendees will learn about what makes a respectful community. This workshop builds on an intersectional approach to identities and experiences that shape how people show up at work, and explores challenges to inclusion by focusing on microaggressions and the impact they can have on workplace culture. Participants will have the opportunity learn how to challenge these instances as an Active Bystander/Upstander. All of these skills are important for fostering a respectful inclusive community.
