Join the United Way’s Equity Challenge
For the entire month, the United Way of Illinois has issued a challenge to participate in a number of weekly informational messages concerning diversity, inclusion and equity that will be beneficial to the Judson University community. Please visit the attached website and enroll in these weekly messages. You can spend as little as 15 minutes or as much as an hour or so reading and listening to the information. Some of the topics covered are: “Understanding Privilege, Housing & Redlining, Justice System Inequities, and Systemic Ethnic Bias”. Through these weekly challenges, you can listen to equity conversations to gain a deeper understanding about systemic ethnic bias and inequity. The hope is to foster awareness, provide education and promote action. This is a 21-week program that you can take advantage of as we move towards a more inclusive campus.

Please sign up at  http://unitedwayillinois.org/equity-challenge/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=

This initiative is supported by the Office of Diversity and Spiritual Development and the Wellness Center.

More activities will be announced by the Black Student Union as their plans progress to celebrate Black History month.
