Event Date(s): 06/14/2021
Event Time(s): 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Event Description: We are all responsible for ensuring a safe space for those around us. As a member of the community, you want to create an inclusive and engaging space at our college locations, classrooms and workplaces for students and colleagues alike. But are you? In this panel discussion, we explore the ways we can make people feel safe and welcome in their classrooms and offices, and what can happen when we don’t. The program will feature a panel presentation. Speakers will be: Phil Burse, chief operating officer of In Our Own Voices, who will present on what we can do to ensure an inclusive and engaging space for our students. Brianna Phillips, ’17 of CAPTAIN, who will discuss the potential impacts on those in the LGTBQ community who have been isolated, shunned, and abused when they came out to family and friends. Representatives from SUNY Empire State College’s Student Life and the Office of Human Resources will provide local resources.
