The Skyline College Equity Training Series (ETS) is an intentional sequence of experiences designed to equip participants with skills, strategies, and tools in the areas of pedagogy and cultural fluency. The experiences include readings, film screenings, facilitated discussions, workshops, lectures, panels, and group projects. Collectively, these experiences prepare participants for the responsibility of aiding in the professional development of their colleagues.

Participant Outcomes

The goal of ETS is for all participants to incorporate concepts and theories from ETS either into current initiatives or projects on campus, developing a new project, or into various office culture/workspace.

Participant Experience

All of these workshops are hosted on Friday afternoons from 12:00 PM- 3:00PM. Lunch will be provided. The first hour and a half will be the talk/workshop by the designated presenter. The last half of the session is the group discussion and planning on how to apply the new information to their work. The final session will consist of presentations sharing the planned application of the practices discussed during the training.
