Promoting Equity and Inclusion
Manhattanville has been examining our role in the fight to confront racism and promote social justice, inclusion and empowerment. Now more than ever, we must work together as a community to bring diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into greater focus across Manhattanville College.
Diversity, equity and inclusion guide our values and serve as our foundation. We seek and cultivate diverse populations and perspectives and promote equity and inclusion. We do so because it is paramount to our health and well-being.
We must not only define these words, we must also be vigilant in our commitment to build and sustain a community that embraces these core values.
Let's continue on this journey together.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging for Employees
"Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging for Employees" is an interactive online training course designed and distributed by EVERFI. This course uses the unique experiences of real people to explore key concepts such as identity, power, privilege and communication. The training facilitates an opportunity for employees to:
- Reflect on elements of your own identity, including identity conflicts, managing multiple identities, while also exploring how external factors influence identity, and the negative impact of assumptions and stereotypes.
- Develop a greater awareness of our biases and how to respond to bias attitudes and behaviors.
- Explore your role in creating inclusive, respectful communities, and learn about skills including self-care, active listening, and effective allyship.
This course will be broken up into 6 modules, with one module being released each month. The modules are as follows:
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Introduction
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Exploring our Identities
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Adressing our Biases
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Understanding our Impact
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Tools for Allyship
- Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging: Accommodating People with Disabilities
