PhD+ Workshop – Proactive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
October 6, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm | Virtual and In Person
How do you proactively promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in your role as a graduate student, a researcher, a teaching assistant, a peer and undergraduate mentor? Learn active steps you can take in every role to promote a just and welcoming environment at UCSC in every space.
Lorato Anderson is the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Graduate Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Her role centers on advancing initiatives for minoritized graduate student support across multiple campus-wide projects, as well as providing direct support to students, staff, faculty, and programs. Lorato graduated with a B.A. in Literature/Writing from UC San Diego and received her M.S. in Higher Education Administration and Policy from Northwestern University, where she researched and developed assessment models for English Language Learners and created multiple DEI programs that are still active today. She has extensive experience in grant writing, teaching, advising, assessment, and creating long-lasting research-backed programs to promote minoritized undergraduate and graduate student success.
Lorato has worked on campus for six years and received the 2020 Outstanding Staff Achievement Award in Social Sciences. Her previous roles include Graduate Program Advisor and Coordinator for Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) and Politics, as well as Undergraduate Advisor for Psychology. She takes pride in incorporating social justice, as well as empathetic advising strategies and teaching pedagogies, in her work in advising, administration, and grant and program development.
Register by September 29th for in-person attendance in Graduate Student Commons, Room 204. The event will also be accessible virtually via Zoom.
