Responding to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (R.E.D.I.) Project
For more information about the project, please contact Robbye.email@example.com.
The Responding to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (R.E.D.I.) Project is an extension of the Stony Brook University Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
The R.E.D.I. Project provides the opportunity for administrators, faculty and staff to attend a six-hour diversity seminar. The seminar is geared toward increasing the understanding and celebration of the myriad of cultures that contribute to our diverse campus community.
The experiential seminar utilizes case study along with group activities as a means of enabling participants to recognize the manifestation and impact of implicit bias in a safe and supportive space.
It is in the spirit that "relationships are primary . . . ." that I encourage all to take advantage of this opportunity for self-reflection, self-awareness and growth. Doing so will serve to enhance our campus climate and reaffirm our appreciation and celebration of our diversity.
