Faculty, staff program opens discussions on race, diversity

Faculty and staff are invited to participate in a new personal and professional development program at UNL, “Dine, Dialogue and Pass It On,” which is designed to encourage dialogue about race, diversity and inclusion.

This program builds on a recent lecture by Shelly Tochluk, author of “Witnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It.” Participants can choose one of the three identical sessions; each of which is limited to 30 participants. The sessions are all Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Nov. 20 Hardin Hall

  • Jan. 29 Hardin Hall

  • Feb. 12 Whittier

To set the stage for the session, participants may want to watch Chimamanda Adichie’s TED talk, “The danger of a single story” and read “Letting Go: How to Join in the Conversation.”

As an added bonus, participants will be treated to culturally inspired appetizers prepared by students in Fayrene Hamouz’s catering class.

For more information including the meeting’s agenda, visit the event’s website.

Register online to secure a space in one of these sessions.
