If we have learned anything from the past two and a half years, it is that pivoting from in-person work to remote environments is not a seamless transition. In fact, many of us have witnessed several examples of how moving our programming to online environments amplifies many of the inequities that are present in the way our society functions. In this course, we will explore what safer online spaces mean to us and how we can work to cultivate better spaces for all.

Upon completion of this course, you will:

  • Identify and recognize individual perceptions of welcoming spaces online
  • Summarize examples of cultivating intentional, safer spaces
  • Begin to apply key concepts for future use
  • Commit to at least 1 practice to implement within the next year
