The Office of Equity offers a variety of informational sessions, trainings, and workshops designed to inform students, staff, faculty, and visitors about their rights and responsibilities as members of the Northwestern community, and to equip community members with the tools to create a vibrant, equitable, and accessible learning environment for all.
All trainings and workshops are customized for your specific department or group, and training facilitators will meet with department/group leaders prior to the training to gather background information, answer questions, and discuss logistics. We welcome inquiries about training topics not listed below.
We are able to offer a limited number of department-/unit-level workshops each quarter. Please see our schedule of open-enrollment trainings if you are interested in attending a training as an individual or with a small group of your colleagues.
