Doing Better at Brandeis (DB@B) Workshop Series - Spring 2022

Understanding & Addressing Violence, Discrimination, and Implicit Bias in our Community

Working with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI), Student Accessibility Support (SAS), the Gender & Sexuality Center (GSC), the Ombuds Office, and the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO), we are offering the Doing Better at Brandeis workshop series for all faculty and staff.

 The series began in the 2020-2021 academic year with the OEO training titled Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Violence & Accessibility at Brandeis University. In that session, participants learned how Brandeis defines these terms in its policies, what type of support resources are available to help someone who may have experienced this conduct and where community members can report these types of concerns. While most staff and faculty have already participated in this course, OEO will provide additional workshops as needed to capture those who missed that training and for new incoming faculty and staff.

Upcoming Workshops

This Spring the workshop series will continue with four additional workshops that will be offered throughout the semester, and are meant to build off the conversations started in the OEO training.  The hope is for all faculty and staff to attend one of these sessions this spring.  The Doing Better at Brandeis workshop series will continue for the 2022-2023 academic year with additional offerings. 

The current workshops include:

The overarching goals of these workshops are to support inclusion and equity, and prevent discrimination, harassment, and other forms of community violence.  Together we hope to work toward an environment where our employees better understand each other and can manage differences and conflicts in a more productive and inclusive manner.
