Engage in Equity Week

The Department of Urban Design & Planning EDI Committee will host its first Equity Week October 26 – 30 for students, faculty, and staff to engage in substantive dialogue. Courses will highlight readings, lessons, activities, and online programming at the department level.

In preparation, the department recommends reading How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi. You can read more about why we chose this Common Book, and how to get a copy here.

Anyone wishing to provide input or help with planning is invited to contact Diana Siembor, the UDP Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (udp4all@uw.edu), and/or Katie Idziorek, the program’s student rep on the committee.
