UWM’s School of Continuing Education is pleased to offer the Culture of Racism, Recovery & Resiliency (CR3) series. Together with valued community partners, we explore strategies to address racism and re-evaluate ways to purposefully practice inclusion. We invite you to join us on this journey as we strive to become the change we want to see in the world.
The CR3 series is designed to equip you, our community change agents, with the tools and resources necessary to address racism and manifest change. This 12-part series offers insightful 90-minute sessions devoted to a range of timely topics, including implicit bias, public health, racism and resiliency. Through inspirational discussions, panel presentations and interactive conversations, you’ll be empowered to take action both personally and professionally – fostering impact and change across institutions, organizations, schools, businesses, communities and beyond. Together, we will work to forge strategic alliances focused on overcoming racism.
