Workshops & Compliance Trainings

OEI’s mission is to provide leadership and support in creating an equitable and inclusive work and learning environment. OEI provides education and resources in the areas of bias, prejudice, harassment and discrimination to encourage and develop awareness and knowledge of individuals’ differences and similarities. Applying this knowledge and promoting this awareness will help us build a stronger and better UD! Join us for one or more of our sessions by registering through UD’s Learn IT Calendar at
