USF staff members are invited to apply for the Fall 2014 cohort of Allies in the Academy, a discussion series held for six weeks over dinners at the University of San Francisco. The program uses a series of edited narratives from Unlikely Allies in the Academy: Women of Color and White Women in Conversation as the basis and guide for meaningful dialogue and discussion for change. We hope that through the methodology and process of this program, participants will have an opportunity to gather together for a person-centered and self-affirming dialogue. The framework of the program aims to affirm and strengthen existing relationships and allyship among staff members at USF.
Space is limited to 18 participants, and part time staff are encouraged to apply. Attendees will receive a copy of the book Unlikely Allies in the Academy. If you are interested in participating please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
