A brief description of the institution’s cultural competence, anti-oppression, anti-racism, and/or social inclusion trainings and activities:

Yale is investing in training in other ways to build and sustain a community where everyone belongs. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides education for employees on unconscious bias, stereotypes, and creating environments of mutual respect. For instructors, the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning educates members of our community on unconscious bias and racial awareness. All schools at Yale inform incoming students about expectations and resources they can turn to if an incident occurs.

In September, 2017 the Yale Divinity School hosted the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond to hold a 2-day intensive workshop on Undoing Racism, that was open to faculty, staff, students, and community members. The workshop addressed the following: Analyzing Power, Recognizing the Internalized Manifestations of Racial Oppression, Defining Racism, Understanding the Manifestations of Racism, Learning from History, Sharing Culture, and Organizing to Undo Racism. This workshop has since been offered periodically for faculty, staff, students and community members interested in participating.
