INFORMATION
Training Overview

Some of your students feel isolated and alone. You can support individuals from marginalized identity groups.

As students have bounded back to schools this year, some feel more alone than ever. It can be extremely isolating to be the only person from a marginalized identity group in a meeting, department, or classroom setting. Students, staff, and faculty members who find themselves as the “only” or “one of a few” in any group setting face imposter syndrome, stereotype threat, biases, and tokenization.

You need to understand how these issues affect retention, satisfaction, and overall school climate. As an ally, you can help overcome these challenges by building an inclusive environment and combatting tokenization.
