Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine Office of Inclusion and Diversity is pleased to present its first-ever diversity one-day workshop. This is a required workshop for the Virginia Tech Diversity Ally and Diversity Advocate certificates. Participants must be present for the entire workshop to get credit toward the Ally and Advocate certificates.

The session will be limited to the first 40 registrants.

In this one-day workshop, participants will learn the basic concepts and terminology used to converse about diversity and inclusion. Participants will explore the key components for creating an inclusive learning environment, including examining the concepts of power, privilege, and discrimination. Participants will investigate theoretical models describing diversity differences and recognize the importance of self-awareness as a skill for effective engagement.

Dr. Jamie Washington, M.Div., Ph.D. will facilitate the session as participants will learn about and practice basic skills for engaging across differences and create some next steps for continuing their diversity journeys.
