October 2, 2020 ADVANCE Weekly Roundup

A recent Presidential Executive Order and Office of Management and Budgets memorandum are critical of diversity training. In this week’s ADVANCE Weekly Roundup we are sharing an article which highlights research done on the effectiveness of diversity training. The article notes numerous studies that find that diversity training coupled with institutional action  can result in positive systemic change. ADVANCE at Michigan Tech is constantly learning from other programs and the literature with regards to diversity programming. We will continue to work alongside the University administration to offer programming that enhances the culture of the Michigan Tech community.

If you have an article you think we should feature, please email it to advance-mtu@mtu.edu and we will consider adding it to the ADVANCE Weekly Roundup.

The ADVANCE Weekly Roundup is brought to you by ADVANCE at Michigan Tech, which is an NSF-funded initiative dedicated to improving faculty career success, retention, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
