Virtual DIAL-IN

DIAL is excited to announce a new bi-weekly roundtable series: Virtual DIAL-IN. Join us every other Friday from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. to discuss relevant topics, such as Black Lives Matter, Anti-Racism, and other critical subjects! Each roundtable will feature a different topic announced a week prior to meeting; members may suggest topics during the roundtables or to the DIAL Programs Chair, Nicollette Brant. Show up with all your musings, worries, jubilations, etc. because we are ready to dial into the issues (all dial puns welcome).

The first DIAL-IN meeting of 2021 is Friday, January 22, co-hosted by and Nicollette Brant, DIAL Programs Chair and Mario Macias, CARL Director-at-Large for Community Colleges. The topics we will be discussing are BLM and Hispanic/Latinx Heritage. Please read the CARL code of conduct before joining. All participants and presenters are expected to observe these rules and behaviors at all CARL-sponsored engagements.

No registration necessary! This event is open to all. The Zoom meeting link is HERE.
