1) Pandemic Resilience

DROP-IN GROUP SESSION

 Date: Time:3:00 pm–4:30 pm
 Zoom
 Contact:CAPS, (402) 472-7450
In this drop-in session for students, participants will acknowledge that the persisting stress of COVID (both in terms of fears of illness, restriction of activities and loss of the sense of normalcy) produces real symptoms in all of us. This stress can also exacerbate current struggles. Pandemic Resilience offers a humanist and existential frame with a Monty Python twist, offering two brief interventions (deep breathing and identity affirmation).

9) When Appreciating Diversity is Not Enough

 Date: Time:3:00 pm–4:15 pm

 Virtual via Zoom
 Contact:Office of Global Strategies, globalstrategies@unl.edu
The biggest barrier to equity and justice in many cases is not a lack of diversity and inclusion effort, but rather the tendency to mistake diversity and inclusion efforts with equity and justice commitments. In this session we will explore how to make sure we’re prioritizing real shifts over optics and impact over fluffiness in our equity, diversity, and inclusion commitments.

Join UPC Nebraska and the Global Nebraska Coalition on Diversity and Inclusion for this special presentation by Dr. Paul Gorski, founder of the Equity Literacy Institute. The event is also sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and Student Affairs.

Dr. Gorski has more than 20 years of experience helping educators, nonprofit workers, and others strengthen their equity efforts. He has published more than 70 articles and has written, co-written, or co-edited twelve books on various aspects of educational equity.

Open to the entire UNL community. Attendees MUST register in advance at: https://go.unl.edu/gorski.
