Trainings and Workshops

Empower Hours

Empower Hour workshops equip participants with an immediately actionable skill set or ability related to a particular social justice or identity-based issue. Each workshop is approximately 50 minutes, hyper-focused, and involves engaging, hands-on opportunities to practice key tools and feel empowered to advocate for sustainable social change. Previous workshops have included such topics as tokenization, reproductive justice, and decolonizing academia. Future topics will be posted closer to the start of the Fall semester.
