The goal of ETS is for all participants to incorporate concepts and theories from ETS either into current initiatives or projects on campus, development a new project, or into various office culture/work spaces.
All of these workshops are hosted on Friday afternoons from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. The first hour and a half will be the talk/workshop by the designated presenter. The second 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. For more information about ETS and to hear from previous participants, visit the Equity Training Series Website.
If you are interested in participating, submit an electronic application by November 17, 2018. All participants will be notified if they have been accepted into the program before winter recess. Contact Katrina Pantig at pantigk@smccd..edu if you have any questions.
