Participants in this powerful Equity Think Tank Series had the opportunity to address the most critical topics of equity, diversity and social justice issues challenging campuses today. Through facilitated discussions, roundtable dialogues, coaching sessions, and a mastermind feedback session, staff and faculty participants developed strategic plans for their institutional areas and brought that work back to their own campuses for future implementation. The energy that was created and the wisdom that was shared during this Think Tank Series was inspiring, and each of the institutional teams brought dedication and commitment to their work of developing thoughtful and sustainable equity strategic plans that will be implemented on their campuses.
