How often do you witness or experience exclusionary behavior on campus and feel frozen and unable to address it in the moment? These moments can leave both those who experience the exclusion and those who witness it frustrated and without the skills to intervene. As universities continue to become increasingly diverse, it is imperative that administrators, faculty, and staff are well versed in key diversity and inclusion concepts. It is critical that we teach all community members strategies to intervene during moments of exclusion, microaggressions, discrimination, and bias. When moments of bias and exclusion happen, how can university communities address harm through restorative practices including intentional and intergroup dialogue?

Please join Naomi Sigg, Director of Multicultural Affairs at Case Western Reserve University, as she helps participants understand diversity and inclusion concepts including implicit bias, intent and impact, and microaggressions. Participants will also think about their own identities and biases, and become familiar with skills and strategies to intervene during exclusionary situations. You will also discover best practices on diversity and inclusion training and programming that focuses on identity, inclusion, and intervention.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Reflect on your own identities and group memberships
  • Explore your campus commitment to diversity and inclusion, and reflect on your current campus climate
  • Understand key diversity and inclusion concepts including implicit bias, intent and impact, and microagressions
  • Examine the concept of dialogue and its value in addressing harm within a community
  • Develop skills to intervene during exclusionary moments
  • Discover training strategies for faculty, staff, and students that will equip people with tools to address exclusion within their spheres of influence



Your conference leader for “Diversity & Inclusion Training: Addressing Implicit Bias, Microaggressions and More” is Naomi Sigg. Director of Multicultural Affairs at Case Western Reserve University since 2013, Naomi plays a major role in the development of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives on campus. She serves as the Co-Chair of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Board and is a member of several university committees including the Diversity Leadership Council, the President's Advisory Council on Minorities, and Alianza, the Latinx employee resource group. Naomi is a certified Green Dot Facilitator working towards preventing violence on campus.

During her tenure at CWRU, Naomi developed the three-hour Diversity 360 educational module for undergraduate and graduate students which serves as a common experience, setting a foundation for key identity, diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts. The program is facilitated by over 100 trained faculty, staff, and students. To date, over 8,000 students have been through the program.

As a strong advocate for underrepresented and marginalized communities, Naomi collaborated with students in the creation of several new organizations including, the Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative, the Black Student Union, Voices: A Women of Color Collaborative, Indigenous Alliance for Native American and Indigenous communities, and most recently, First CWRU, a support network for First Generation studetns on campus. Naomi often presents her work at regional and national conferences including the International Conference on Conflict Resolution and Education, the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE), the American College Personnel Association (ACPA), and the Ohio Consortium for Multicultural Centers in Higher Education (OCMCHE). In 2015, she was the recipient of the Mather Spotlight Award presented by the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and in 2017, along with colleagues from Case Western Reserve University she received the National Dialogue Award presented by the Sustained Dialogue International Institute. She was also awarded the OCPA Equity and Inclusion Award in 2018.

Naomi earned both her undergraduate degree in political science and her graduate degree in college student personnel at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Outside of work, she is a mother of two small children who continue to keep her occupied as they discover the world through books, adventures at local parks and museums, and various foodie destinations.
