Workshop Series: Resilience and Empowerment Through Racially Challenging Times

Throughout July, the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the UA Counseling Center will host a series of workshops titled “Resilience and Empowerment Through Racially Challenging Times.”

The workshop series aims to provide a conceptual framework to understand how race affects the overall experiences of racial minorities and how racial injustice and trauma contribute to minority mental health concerns. The series will discuss coping strategies and ways to thrive by engaging in meaningful actions.

For each workshop, one session will be held for students and another session will be held for faculty and staff. Registration for the online workshops is available via Eventbrite. A registration code will be sent to those who register.
