The workshop participants continued to grow, with the biggest growth seen in Fall of 2015, and the smallest increase in Spring of 2016. Spring of 2016 had the largest returning participants. Speaker Michael Benitez, Jr. had the largest audience with most participants stating they were somewhat satisfied to very satisfied with the relevance to equity and inclusion, the topic being professionally meaningful, and able to apply to their work. Charlene Strong, the winter quarter speaker had a larger number of neutral responses when asked if her talk related to equity and inclusion, was professionally meaningful and/or could be applied to a participant’s work.
Summer of 2016 has been dedicated to focus groups of both participants and facilitators, informational interviews and videographical interviews of folks from our campus community who have participated in the forum. To view the videos click on "Staff Experiences" under the category "WWU Campus Equity & Inclusion Forum.

The WWU Campus Equity and Inclusion Forum had its kick-off mid October. Faculty and staff from our own campus have mindfully created workshops to deliver as part of a professional development initiative around diversity and inclusion education for our campus community.
This "snapshot" represents an aggregate of all the Spring quarter 2016 workshop evaluations related to areas of: session satisfaction, knowledge of facilitators, workshop outcomes, experience level, and the participants' perspective of the usefulness of the information presented.
Many thanks to our facilitators from our campus community who continue to facilitate workshops for this program, and to the campus for your participation and feedback.
You are appreciated!
