Talking About DEI at Home: Facilitating ARiA on Campus
Working in conjunction with the national ARiA program, Wesleyan University piloted the ARiA signature ROLLAP program at our home institution. Having served as facilitators for the national program, Karen Warren and Rachel Schepper brought their skills to a more intimate setting. Each facilitated a cohort—one online and one in person. In our presentation, we will reflect on the transition from participating in a national DEI program to bringing it to a local level. What challenges and opportunities did this local version of the program offer, and how did we address them? We hope to spark a conversation among audience participants about what they encounter as the challenges and opportunities in doing DEI work at their campuses.
