The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty and staff to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.
In this session, participants will explore the history of work and career advancement through a critical lens; highlighting systems of power such as privilege and oppression that continue to impact employment outcomes and create inequities in today's society.
Using selected examples, this session will provide a timeline history of labor and income inequality in the United States. Participants will learn about events/policies/acts that have promoted or impeded social justice and discuss the ramifications of these incidents on today’s workforce.
