InclusiveMU Ambassadors

InclusiveMU Ambassadors are student employees who assist the Office of Diversity and Inclusion with creating a campus environment that is inclusive for all identities through research, presentation development, and workshop facilitation on topics related to diversity, inclusion, and social justice.
 

Which Presentation are you requesting?
  • Ally 101
    “Ally 101” provides definitions of privilege, oppression, targeted groups, and other information every ally needs to know. Moving beyond performative allyship, audience members will be given examples of how to be an authentic- ally to each underrepresented group. Presenters will also explore recent social justice topics and current events to provide a fresh perspective.
  • Ally 200
    “Ally 200” is a continuation of the Allyship series that the campus community can request to continue their education in cultural competency and becoming a better ally. This workshop will cover inclusive language, general need to know information on protesting and taking the initiative to be more engaged in your own communities and social groups.
  • It’s Not Just Politics
    “It’s Not Just Politics” explores the various ways targeted groups are oppressed in the United States through laws and social construct reinforcements. The goal of this presentation is for audience members to understand that racism and other forms of oppression is also about power not just personal bias. That power is enacted through who is elected and the policies they pass. This presentation will conclude with information on being an informed voter, importance of participating in local and national elections, and how to register to vote.
  • Environmental Racism: How Climate Change affects Social Justice Issues
    “Environmental Racism: How Climate Change affects Social Justice Issues” goal is to explore, inform, and discuss the social, political, and existential obstacles affecting people’s everyday lives. Unfortunately people of color have been on the front lines of the climate crisis due to structural racism. The presentation will discuss how many sustain long term health effects and the actions put in place to help this global issue.
