This session is a part of the "Elevating Identity: Strategies for Engaging Every Jewish Student" series – a nine-part educational series brought to you by the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative at Hillel and Hillel U’s Center for Engagement, Inclusion, & Wellness. This series of online learning sessions focuses on identity and inclusion in efforts to move towards our organizational goal of reaching and engaging “every Jewish student”. When we say “every”, we mean it, but often struggle with putting it into practice. The overall goal of this series is to better prepare each participant to engage all students through an increased understanding of our communities’ diversity, how our own identities impact our work, and how the narratives we are familiar with dictate our course of action on campus. You do not need to join all nine sessions, but you are encouraged to join as many as possible. Check the Hillel U Catalog the rest of the series’ sessions!
