Fall 2017

November 27, 2017, Workshop:

Conflict Resolution - Led by Emily Meyer and Sam Fleischer

Do you sometimes find yourself in situations where you don't know what to say? Perhaps a coworker or friend has made an inappropriate or offensive remark and you're not sure how to make your voice heard. At our last workshop (Introduction to Allyship), we began a discussion on *when* you should speak up. At this workshop, we will address *how* you can speak up.

We invite you to come learn with us at the Conflict Resolution workshop on November 27, at 1:10pm in MSB 3106.

During the hour-long workshop we will introduce a specific conflict resolution technique, and participants will practice what they learn in various scenarios.

October 24, 2017, Outreach Event:

We visited Lee Middle School in Woodland, and taught a small group of girls about math. It was fun and inspiring! In future quarters, we'll be visiting other local middle and high schools as well as Girl Scout troop meetings, with hopes of teaching young minds about math, and encouraging girls to continue learning about STEM fields. Contact us to get involved in upcoming visits!

October 23, 2017, Workshop:

Allyship - Led by Emily Meyer and Sam Fleischer

Are you aware of social justice issues around you but unsure of what to do about them? Do you want to help but don't know how? Perhaps you've heard people make racist, sexist, xenophobic, or otherwise inappropriate jokes or statements and wondered what to say. If any of this applies to you, then we invite you to come learn with us at the Allyship workshop on October 23 at 1:10pm in MSB 3106.

It is important that people with privilege step up to be active allies to minority and marginalized communities. This workshop will focus on when, why, and how to be an ally.
