DEI Roundtable--Joseph

Do you wonder what do people mean by "DEI"–diversity, equity and inclusion? Do you want to feel more comfortable talking about race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and/or migration? Are you wondering why or how your organization should engage questions of privilege?

Join us for a dynamic, interactive roundtable featuring Alaí Reyes-Santos, who will lead participants into a discussion that addresses questions of relevance to people in Northeast Oregon. Don't miss the chance to meet other organizations and community volunteers willing to have the hard conversations that are needed to build a better future for everyone.

The next roundtables will be held:
• May 1 at 10 a.m. at The Place, 301 S Lake St., in Joseph
• May 2 at 10 a.m. at the Baker County Library, 2400 Resort St., in Baker City
Dr. Alaí Reyes-Santos is an associate professor of ethnic studies at the University of Oregon. She is an award-winning scholar, and writer on race, gender, and migration studies, recently earning the 2015 Ersted Award for Distinguished Teaching. She has led workshops and served as a consultant on issues of equity and inclusion for the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights, Northwest Youth Corps, Pearl Buck Center, Nonprofit Association of Oregon, School Garden Project, and Centro Bono (Dominican Republic).

Future roundtable dates are Aug. 1 (Location in Wallowa County TBD) and Nov. 7, 2018, and Feb. 6, 2019. Details forthcoming.
The sessions include lunch. The cost to attend is $25 per person per roundtable discussion. Register for Joseph here (https://bit.ly/2J0zdPY) and for Baker City (https://bit.ly/2GfZAj7). Scholarships are available; please inquire at NEOEDD, 541-426-3598.
