The Wits Transformation and Employment Equity Office will host its first Transformation Dialogue for 2017.
The Transformation Dialogues form a core component of the annual events for the Office, and are intended to provide the University community with a space in which to engage on pertinent Transformation issues. The dialogues are conceptualised as lunchtime conversations in a space which is safe, free of judgement and respectful of differences.
Recognising the potential need to start off on a clean slate, the theme for the first dialogue is “What is transformation and why do we need it?” and it is hoped that this space will bring together multiple perspectives that will effectively take the University closer to realising its goal of a unified Institutional Culture, driven by a collective belief in what Transformation in the University is meant to be.
The dialogue will include presentations from various sectors in the University community. Since this is intended as a lunchtime conversation, these presentations will be kept as brief as possible in order to devote the bulk of the time to fruitful and respectful engagement with the audience. Finally, it is the hope that this dialogue will serve as the starting point for several dynamic and productive conversations throughout the year.
Please note: This event will be recorded.
