Trainings and Workshops

Please give us 2 weeks to prepare for your workshop/training. Workshops can be facilitated for students, staff, or faculty. If you do not see a relevant training or workshop listed, please reach out to our office to see if there is something else we can offer or build together.

Diversity & Inclusion

This training can include a variety of topics, activities, and conversation to increase participants' understanding of diversity and inclusion, and to create a sense of belonging for all at Oregon Tech. This training can be tailored to your program, department, or classroom.

Safe Zones

Safe Zone trainings are opportunities to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender and sexuality, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege. Attend this training to learn how to be supportive and provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty.

How to Respond to Racism

This workshop explores our understanding of race, how it is defined in society and the history of racism, then moves on to processing and responding to racism. Activities, scenarios, and discussion ask workshop attendees to share and examine racism, build solidarity, and be empowered to respond to racism in day-to-day living.

Snack and Substance

For this activity, questions are created that focus on a specific theme or topic (gender, sexuality, race, social class, culture), participants are then led through a facilitated conversation that allows for exploration and a deepening of understanding, while also respecting and acknowledging difference. Snacks are also served.

Report an Incident

If you have witnessed or experienced an act of discrimination on campus, please provide information. You may fill this form out anonymously by providing no identifying information, and providing only the information you feel comfortable sharing.
