    Activity Description 

    We have three steps this year related to this initiative:
    1. Catherine Ashcraft came to the IU campus to give talks on unconscious bias in technology environments.
    2. We designed and implemented a "required for all" workshop for our 250+ teaching assistants. It is permanently in place for all new teaching assistants each semester.
    3. We have a group of students developing an eBadge on this topic to be used in classrooms, training and more.
