Spaces are still available in the Fall 2023 cohort of Justice at Work, a self-paced learning opportunity for Emerson staff members offered through the Social Justice Collaborative and Human Resources.
Justice at Work is designed to deepen knowledge of equity, access, and social justice practices through chapters that address critical history along with frameworks that are applicable to our work in higher education.
Originally designed by Freedom Lifted, Justice at Work was piloted last fall and customized to Emerson’s unique needs. A cohort of 50 staff members participated in the initial program, including Erin Glover, Associate Director of Student Accessibility Services.
“I appreciated the opportunity to move through the course independently, then come together with colleagues across the College to dive deeper into this important work,” Glover said.
Justice at Work launched September 11 with asynchronous access to a self-paced online learning platform. Each chapter will take roughly two to four hours to complete. Participants will attend debrief conversations with Mia Henry, Freedom Lifted founder and host of Justice at Work, as well as Emerson-facilitated Lunch & Learns every two weeks, beginning Tuesday, September 28. See the Fall 2023 Cohort Calendar for dates, times, and lesson benchmarks.
Participants who complete the full Justice at Work for Emerson College online program and attend a majority of the debrief conversations and Lunch & Learns will receive a certificate at the end of the program.
