Kent State is committed to being a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace. In support of this commitment, a workshop series for staff has been organized by the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and HR Training and Development. All sessions will be held remotely throughout the summer. A second session will be offered in the fall.
Staff who are accepted are required to attend all five sessions and submit reflections for each session before receiving a stipend of $1,000. All of the sessions are synchronous and will be held virtually.
