Undocu-Meredith Training Opportunities for Faculty and Staff

Meredith’s DEI Program is sponsoring two employee training opportunities led by UndocuCarolina in May. Both are open to all Meredith employees.

UndocuCarolina is a collaboration of UNC students, faculty, staff, and community members working to increase visibility, support, and resources for members of the community living with the effects of undocumentation.

The first program, UndocuMeredith, will be held on May 17 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. 

UndocuMeredith Workshop Learning Objectives

  1. Become familiar with federal, state, and university laws and policies related to undocumentation and higher ed.
  2. Build understanding and empathy with those most closely impacted by restrictive immigration policies.
  3. Deconstruct harmful narratives about undocumented communities in favor of immigrant-friendly language and framing.
  4. Learn about campus and community resources
  5. Leave with at least one way that you can be an ally to Meredith’s undocumented community
