Brenda J. Allen, associate vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion for the CU Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus, recently conducted a three-hour, professional development workshop for the CU-Boulder Controller’s Office based on her book, “Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity.”

During the interactive session, Allen engaged participants to explore insights and ideas on how they can collectively advance the university’s goal of enhancing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion.

More than 100 people – mostly staff members – registered for this event, the first of a two-part series. Allen said the workshop “reflects a strong commitment to diversity from a major unit on campus whose leader has set aside a significant block of time for staff to concentrate on diversity and inclusion.”
