There is nothing you want more than to see your student grow into a caring, accepting human being. A great way to help students grow and change is to help them check their biases and to learn about diversity and inclusion.
While research has found that 92 percent of Gen Z-ers care about social issues and are concerned for the future — and more than 75 percent of students think companies should support important social issues — there is always more to learn. Thus the “Check Your Blind Spots” college campus tour, sponsored by Action for Diversity & Inclusion, is kicking off!
According to a recent press release, the tour, while geared towards students who are admittedly more engaged with social issues, is to help students discover the blind spots of their own biases and to help students fight against a wider variety of discrimination.
“We’re proud to be working with some of our signatory colleges and universities to bring the “Check Your Blind Spots” program to young people across the country,” said Tim Ryan, U.S. Chairman and Senior Partner of PwC and chair of the steering committee for the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™.
“As CEOs of major companies, we’ve seen how valuable this coalition has been in helping our employees make better and more inclusive decisions. We believe that as tomorrow’s workforce, today’s students must leave school with the right set of skills for the job. This not only includes technical skills, but also the ability to be inclusive, and to support and encourage diverse perspectives and contributions.”
The “Check Your Blind Spots” campus tour will be at each of these campuses:
● Oct. 17 | Villanova University | Villanova, Pennsylvania
● Oct. 19 | Bentley University | Waltham, Massachusetts
● Oct. 23 | Miami University | Oxford, Ohio
● Oct. 25 | Binghamton University | Binghamton, New York
● Oct. 27 | Pennsylvania State University | State College, Pennsylvania
“At Villanova, we place a high value on building community among our members,” said University President Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, Ph.D. “Community begins by reaching out to others, engaging in difficult dialogue, embracing differences and challenging preconceptions. Signing this pledge reaffirms our commitment to diversity and inclusion in all areas at Villanova.”
