Monday, April 30, 12-12:50pm in MSB 3106, Workshop: Social Change Now
It is oftentimes difficult to identify solutions to social problems in STEM. Even if you have ideas about what needs to change, you may not know how to take the first step. In this workshop, we will work together to (a) identify realistic goals for social change in STEM and (b) identify how to utilize your network and your power to make steps toward your goals. (Please note the room change from our previous location!)
Monday, April 16, 12-12:50pm in MSB 3240, Mission Statement Workshop
Our first meeting of spring quarter will be a Mission Statement Workshop in which we rework the mission statement of our student chapter to reflect the vision and goals of our current members. (See current mission statement here.) The intention for this workshop is to clearly and precisely define our direction and purpose as an organization, and for every member to understand why their contributions are important and valuable to the group. It's also a great way to decide what events and activities we should prioritize to best promote our overall goals. For those of you who are considering becoming more active in AWM, this is an awesome opportunity both to see what we are all about and to have a voice in deciding how we proceed as a club.
Thursday, Feb. 8, 1:10-2 PM, AWM Workshop
Who is Responsible for Social Justice? - Led by Emily Meyer and Sam Fleischer
The term “social justice” gets thrown around in the media (and in social media) haphazardly. Who administrates social justice? Are you interested in the history of this term, why it gets used, and figuring out where you stand regarding this heated phrase?
During this workshop, participants will:
Light snacks will be provided. We hope to see you there.
Monday, November 27, 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.
Monday, October 23, 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.
