Communities of practice (CoPs) are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and seek to learn how to do it better through regular interaction. CoPs share three common elements: Domain, Community and Practice.
The Office of Equity, Inclusion and Employee Well-Being supports and partners with several communities of practice on campus:
EID Community of Practice
The EID (Equity, Inclusion and Diversity) Community of Practice (CoP) provides a space for EID practitioners across campus and in the community to reflect and process their work around EID, to share best practices, and to learn from each other. The EID CoP is open to anyone engaged with EID-related initiatives and programs. To learn more and to get involved, please email the Office of Equity, Inclusion and Employee Well-Being (EIEW) at email@example.com.
Well-Being Community of Practice
The Well-Being Community of Practice (CoP) provides a space for well-being practitioners across campus and in the community to reflect and process their work around well-being and equity, to share best practices, learn from each other, and inform campus policy.

Antiracism Community of Practice
The Antiracism CoP aims to focus on putting antiracism into practice. Rotating facilitators will provide, and participants are encouraged to share, tools and strategies for pursuing antiracism practices within areas such as, but not limited to, hiring practices, curriculum design, classroom management, office structure, and more. Through this structure, we seek to build collective institutional capacity for advancing antiracism and advocating for institutional change.
