Fall 2023 NCBI Welcoming Diversity Workshop

Friday, March 3rd, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Otter Student Union, Room 210

The NCBI Welcoming Diversity Workshop is an ideal training for CSUMB students, staff, faculty and other campus community members who wish to develop their multicultural sensitivity, challenge the preconceived notions we were all taught about various groups of people, learn to be better allies, and take pride in their own complex identities and cultural affiliations.   Student leaders and members of identity-group organizations including employee affinity groups are especially encouraged to register.
