Pins and graduation cords for eight weeks of workshops on diversity and inclusion! Participation trophies!

The George Washington University is now offering a “diversity graduation cord” to students who complete at least eight weekly training sessions this year.

The topics include “Unconscious Bias,” “Gendered Language,” “LGBTQIA Safe Zone,” training, and more. The program is put on through the Multicultural Student Services Center, a division of GW dedicated to providing a “safe space” for “students to explore, embrace, and share their diverse identities and experiences.”

Students who finish the whole program will also be rewarded with a certificate of completion and a pin for each “competency.”
