Dr. Bongi Wenyika: Diversity Equity and Inclusion Course Splash Graphic

DEI Course Extended Until December 31st, 2022!

The Kansas Volunteer Commission presents five Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) learning sessions intended to provide participants with an introduction to DEI concepts and vocabulary. The course developed by Dr. Bongi Wenyika, addresses the following topics: ‚ÄčHistory, Immigration, Assumptions and Myths About What is American; Definition, Dimension and Types of Diversity; Dynamics of Inequality; Understanding Disability by Challenging Ableism Through Inclusive Practices; Raising Awareness of LGBTQIA Challenges in Communities.

This is an on-demand course that participants can progress through at their own pace.

Each learning session in the course will have a pre-recorded video and a workbook in Google Classroom. The workbooks will contain: activities to be completed while following along with each video; homework and reflective activities to help participants think about what they have learned; resource lists for further learning around each topic.

In addition, the Google Classroom will have a general DEI resource library with resources that are not specific to the course but are relevant to DEI work and learning.

The cost for the entire five-part DEI course is $25. Once registered, invoices will be sent the Friday following the registration date. Invoices must be paid before access to the course will be granted. Credit cards are not accepted. Scholarships are available upon request.
