Maversity

Social Justice Workshop Series

The Maversity program consists of a series of diversity workshops aimed at empowering students to be leaders in a diverse community. These fun and interactive workshops are open to all UTA students. Maversity provides a safe space to probe hot topics like gender, race, stereotypes, prejudice, privilege, personal identity, socio-economic class, and social justice issues. Maversity workshops are hosted by the Leaders Educating About Diversity (LEAD) team, a specially selected group of student peer facilitators.
