“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

October 8, 11:00 am EDT - December 17, 12:30 pm EST

In this reflection group series facilitated and participated in by Chetna, we’ll take time to think, express, and connect with themes of identity, female relationships, anti-blackness and casteism, belonging, shame, sexuality and freedom as it relates to our lives.

November 30, 12:30 pm EST - December 15, 3:30 pm EST

As people who benefit from white privilege and often hold positional power, these times call on us to ask: what is ours to do, individually and collectively?

December 6, 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

We are all living in challenging times that our past experience and training has not sufficiently prepared us for. Too often, well intentioned equity efforts do not succeed—and even produce unintended consequences. This can lead to frustration, hopelessness and cynicism. This workshop offers an introduction to our Liberatory Design approach.
