IDEAL Diversity Action Plan
2017 Summer Workshops
Topic: “Innovation Within The Bounds Of The Law: Legal Guidance for Fine-Tuning and Implementing our Diversity Action Plans (DAPs)”
Many of the proposed tactics in our Diversity Action Plans are aimed at increasing access and opportunities for groups that are currently under-represented at various levels of our university. In this workshop, our colleagues in the Office of the General Counsel and Admissions will provide an overview of the legal landscape on these issues as well as guidelines to ensure that our tactics are innovative, bold and legally permissible. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to talk about their plans with others and also get ideas about how to frame as well as structure them within a legally-permissible framework.
Presenters: Kevin Reed, Jim Rawlins

Topic: “Tactics, Measurement and Accountability: Practical Steps for Ensuring That You’re Measuring DAP Progress Along The Way”
Evidence, data and robust analyses are very much foundational to the production and preservation of knowledge at the University of Oregon. Consequently, we need to ensure that each unit has the requisite tools to establish metrics to measure DAP progress along the way. At this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to talk about their measurement strategies with others and learn more about how they can design measurement strategies that allow them to effectively measure the progress that they are making along the way.
Presenters: JP Monroe, Jonathan Jacobs, Diane del Guercio

Topic: “Understanding The Terminology of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion”
With 38 individual diversity plans, it’s easy to get lost in the maze of terminologies being used by different UO units to describe nuances and issues. In this workshop, we will discuss the meaning of certain terminologies and the implication of using one terminology versus another. Most importantly, we will facilitate a conversation that will help us to discuss the power of language and its impact on our work.
Presenters: Kyle Henley, Spike Gildea, Lesley-Anne Pittard, Kris Anderson Wright
