Diversity Training

R.I.S.E. Training Program

R.I.S.E. (Realizing Inclusive Spaces and Education)  diversity and inclusivity training program raises awareness about diverse experiences and identities and builds allies for diversity and inclusion.

Each workshop aims to assist participants rise to the challenge of inclusive excellence and over the everyday “isms," engage in meaningful dialogue, and advocate for change in impactful ways. 

R.I.S.E. workshops are co-facilitated by trained Cabrini faculty, staff, and students.

To create an inclusive community, individuals must examine the world around them through their own personal values, beliefs, stories, stereotypes and multiple identities.

The program's structure allows participants to enter the track-based training at any knowledge level. Through dialogue and group activities, participants can grow their knowledge about themselves, others, and the world around them both individually and collectively. 

R.I.S.E. seeks to help participants connect with themselves and others, build critical thinking about the world around them, and start being allies to those in their community.

Workshop tracks include Diversity 101, Ally Training, Intersectionality, #BeTheChange, Social Identity, Cultural Competence, and R.I.S.E. Facilitation Training. Participants are not required to complete all tracks.

  • Develop leadership and professional skills (such as facilitation, public speaking, and community engagement)
  • Make new friends and connections
