ORSP was delighted to welcome Dr. Bryant Marks, a U-M alum and founder of the National Training Institute on Race and Equity (NTIRE), for a synchronous and virtual professional development event.

Thank you to the ninety-one OVPR staff members who attended the ORSP-sponsored implicit bias awareness training session on February 1. NTIRE delivered an interactive, dynamic, and exceptionally well-researched presentation that included an in-depth exploration of multiple facets of implicit bias from NTIRE's Brake Your Bias curriculum.

It was a pleasure to have staff from several OVPR units attend and engage on Zoom for this event.

NTIRE recently shared the slides from this event. OVPR attendees can request these slides by writing to orsp-dei@umich.edu
