Advocates and Allies Workshop Coming October 17 and 18

We need YOUR help to improve gender equity at Michigan Tech and invite you to join us for a workshop on October 17 or 18, 2019. The Advocates and Allies program, which originated at North Dakota State University has been adapted at numerous institutions around the nation and is now being adapted at Michigan Tech. This workshop is a part of Michigan Tech’s NSF funded ADVANCE Initiative and will be facilitated by Dr. Roger Green and Dr. Christi McGeorge from North Dakota State University and Dr. Robert Gordon from Auburn University.

Over the course of October 17 and 18 we will be holding the workshop three times in an effort to meet everyone’s schedule. During each workshop, there will be two concurrent sessions: one for men to work towards becoming advocates for gender equity and one for women and gender diverse individuals to discuss the issues they face related to gender equity. The workshops will be held in the Memorial Union Building Ballroom A from 9:30AM to 11:30AM and 1:00PM to 3:00PM on October 17 and from 8:30AM to 10:30AM on October 18. Refreshments will be served and attendance will be recorded in your Digital Measures if you bring your Michigan Tech ID.
