The Skyline College Learning, Equity & Growth Series (LEGS), formerly known as Equity Training Series, is an intentional sequence of experiences designed to increase awareness of the various intersections of equity. LEGS will provide attendees with additional access points to understand how equity gaps are not only created, but systematically embedded and supported within the many institutions, systems, infrastructures, and practices of our society.

Sessions include readings, film screenings, facilitated discussions, workshops, lectures, panels, and group projects. Collectively, these sessions ask participants to look past the sole notion of “equity as training” and challenge them to reflect on their current practices and how to incorporate intersectional equity knowledge into their current work and beyond.

Participant Outcomes

The goal of LEGS is for all participants to incorporate concepts and theories from LEGS either into current initiatives or projects on campus, developing a new project, or into various office culture/workspace. Participants will submit proposals during week four of the series.

Participant Experience

All of these workshops are hosted on Friday afternoons from 12 to 3 p.m. 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.
