"Uncovering the Individual Meaning of Diversity:  Serving Underprepared Students and Sharing the Service with Your Colleagues"

Who does the diversity and equity work at your college? Is it the role of a particular office or particular individuals? Perhaps you feel like you're the only one invested in diversity and equity at your college. If you're currious about how to integrate diversity and equity work into the daily life of your college, then the January 2019 Teaching and Learning for Student Success webinar is for you. Please join us on January 17th, 2018 at 3:00pm CST / 2:00pm MST / 4:00pm EST for “Uncovering the Individual Meaning of Diversity:  Serving Underprepared Students and Sharing the Service with Your Colleagues” with LaDrina Wilson. Wilson starts with the premise that diversity is multidimensional concept that can take on a very personal meaning.  This presentation seeks to help higher education professionals understand how to empower all individuals in higher education to incorporate diversity work and service to diverse students into daily life.  A review of data and common practices as it relates to disproportionate service to diverse student populations will shed light on the importance of sharing the service among all colleagues, not just people of color.

About this month’s speaker:

LaDrina Wilson currently serves a Dean of Students at Scott Community College, one of the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.  During her tenure at EICC, she has spearheaded numerous initiative to advance the culture as well as developed professional development programs to enhance understanding of diversity and social justice.  She previously served as the Equal Employment Opportunity Officer for EICC and used this position to highlight the importance of diversity and social justice training in higher education.

In addition to her roles in the community college, she has spent a significant amount of time advocating for the advancement of women and young professionals.  Her work in her community earned her the designation of 2014 Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce Young Professional of the Year, 2014 Iowa Admission Professional of the Year Finalist and 2015 Gathering of Women Young and Gifted Award.  Most recently she was awarded the Glynn Fellow Scholarship from AAUW (American Association of University Women), Ester Catherine Harmon Graduate Scholarship, and the Larry and Barber Ebbers Graduate Scholarship, to purse her PhD in Education.  In addition to her full-time work in student affairs, she also hosts seminars and speaking engagements.  Her current presentations speak the experiences of minority groups, non-dominate cultures, equal pay, career ascension, leadership and enhancing customer service through cultural awareness. 

As a researcher and PhD Candidate at Iowa State University, LaDrina is committed to uncovering the individual meaning of diversity to help people understand how personal understanding and experiences fit into the social context of diversity.  LaDrina believes that differences are not deficiencies and when differences are treated as assets, we as a community become collectively stronger.  Through qualitative research and practical experiences as a student affairs professional, LaDrina seeks to support individuals, particularly white people, in enhancing cultural competencies.  In addition, she works to assist minorities in building collaborative coalitions that invite allies to the table to support minority causes.
