Bronx, N.Y. – Fordham Athletics is continuing to make efforts in creating a more inclusive and welcoming Fordham Athletics department and environment by providing DEI training to all of the department’s coaches, staff, and administrators as well as our Ram student-athletes.
Fordham coaches, staff, and administrators recently completed their third training session with Dr. Victoria Farris and Dr. Jen Fry. The three trainings have covered many issues and topics such as definitions, creating brave spaces, frames and lenses of identity, experiences and values, and the cycle of socialization, among others.
Fordham student-athletes attended a training session with Dedication To Community (D2C) hosted by founder and CEO, Quentin Williams, and Cory McGookin, vice president for law enforcement relations for D2C. The session served as an introduction to D2C and focused on reconciliation, healing, and unity.
“Fordham Athletics is proud to partner with these three organizations to provide our department with the tools and knowledge to create a better culture and environment,” said Director of Athletics Ed Kull. “We know we still have a long way to go but we will continue to make DEI initiatives and programs a priority for both our staff and student-athletes.”
