Please join us for a half-day workshop to be led by Dr. Joi Lewis, CEO and Founder of Joi Unlimited: Where Leadership Meets Life.

Dr. Joi uses the Orange Method (OM) framework, which is grounded in the deep concept of Healing Justice. The Orange Method helps individuals and institutions to transform against the backdrop of oppression-induced trauma by creating boundaries at work, falling in love with self and community again or perhaps for the first time, and developing better access to the healthy expression of grief and pain. This approach is accessible to every human being who truly believes in transformation and liberation, particularly those of us who have been historically left out.

This workshop will:

  • Create a space for those impacted by issues of hate/bias and feeling unwelcome on campus for embracing self-care and resilience.
  • Explore inclusive ways the campus community can radically host itself to build resilience in the face of divisiveness.
  • Build capacity by identifying ways individuals and the campus community can stay strong and connected as we continue to work toward a more welcoming and inclusive campus community and society.

Open to faculty, staff, students. Lunch will be provided.

Sponsored by the Campus Climate Engagement Team
