Equity Data Coaching Program:

The Equity Data Coaching Program provides monthly trainings to a cohort of faculty, staff, and managers seeking to deepen their equity knowledge and skillset to successfully champion current and future racial equity efforts on campus. The training activities develop knowledge and skills necessary to compile, analyze, and interpret racial equity data and provide opportunities for participants to practice difficult conversations about race, racism, and racial equity data through case study work.
