Racism in our society creates a situation where people of color often take disproportionate responsibility for addressing and eliminating racist practices and ideas. This group targets the participation of white employees to provide them an opportunity to play a central role in eliminating racism – at Wilder, in the community, and in our lives. All employees are welcome to attend events and participate in activities.

The group works to ensure that Wilder, as an employer and service provider, is a welcoming and empowering organization, and works with other Employee Resource Groups to promote an understanding of LGBTQ issues.
A group that raises and supports issues impacting employees of African descent. Ujima (Oo-jee-ma) is a Kiswahili word and is one of KWANZAA’s seven principles.
