Workshop Evaluation

Click here to download a summary of the post-workshop evaluations.
71 of Black students said that the workshop felt like a place of refuge
85 of Black students felt the workshop equipped them with tools to help them heal and thrive
82 of those not already receiving support reported an increased likelihood to reach out for help
My main takeaway from today’s workshop is that it’s okay to feel burnt out sometimes and there are good coping methods out there, as well as support. "
