What is the REDI Lunch & Learn Series?

The Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion is proud to present a new REDI Lunch & Learn series featuring our team of advisors: Robyn Campol, Dr. Neila Miled and Derek Thompson. This fresh and informative series will be spontaneous and conversational in its approach to talk about issues that are timely and relevant. These sessions will also highlight the importance of showing up to these necessary conversations with presence and persona – so bring your very best of curiosity and energy!

Each session will also provide an opportunity for the participants to engage in a Q & A or to simply to reflect on the merits of the conversations. This exciting series will be offered weekly starting in March 2022, with each advisor presenting their own one hour session.
