Accessibility, Inclusivity, Racial Justice, and Equity Fund (AIRE)

The newly imagined Accessibility, Inclusivity, Racial Justice, and Equity Fund (AIRE) has been re-envisioned to primarily provide co-sponsorship for BIPOC and other affinity organizations, career exploration for traditionally underrepresented and marginalized groups, and secondarily to provide continued DEIA training for our staff. Student groups interested in collaborating with the ‘68 Center for DEIA events with a career related focus (e.g. networking, training or workshops, panels)  should complete the ‘68 Center Collaboration Form. If you have any questions, you can schedule an appointment with the Director of Inclusive Career Exploration, Alexa Icenia by emailing ai7​@williams​.edu

At the moment, the pool of funds is limited, so the ‘68 Center will support as many projects as possible until the funds are exhausted. Our goal is to utilize these funds to provide co-sponsorship for events that coincide with affinity-focused times of the year (e.g. honoring heritage months such as Hispanic Heritage Month, Black History Month, Women’s Month, Autism Awareness, Pride, and other LGBTQIA+ events, and beyond). 

Finally, we want to hear YOUR voices, so please fill out the collaboration form above, or schedule an appointment with Alexa at your convenience to talk about how we can build out our support for you and grow the Accessibility, Inclusivity, Racial Justice, and Equity Fund further.
