“Realizing Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace” utilizes testimony from USC Shoah Foundation’s first-person testimonies to explore the role of identity as a vehicle to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This interactive, skills building workshop offers participants an opportunity to interact with testimony, deconstruct and carefully consider the power of narrative as an agent of change, and explore avenues for the promotion of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Dr. Sara E. Brown is a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at USC Shoah Foundation - The Institute for Visual History and Education. Prior to her Ph.D. in comparative genocide studies, Brown researched globalization and conflict at the Interdisciplinary Center in Israel and served as a project coordinator in refugee camps in western Tanzania. Brown is also the author of Gender and the Genocide in Rwanda: Women as Perpetrators and Rescuers. Her work at USC Shoah Foundation focuses on the power of testimony, harnessing USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive and free education portal, IWitness University, to support post-secondary education initiatives around the globe.
