The Inclusive Search and Recruitment Toolkit is a comprehensive toolkit compiled by the Office for Inclusion and Equity (OIE) in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). 

The Lemonade Syllabus: Benbow and others
The Lemonade Syllabus pays homage to the critically acclaimed Beyonce album of the same title. The Lemonade album was heralded as novel art that celebrates Black women, their beauty, and their multiplicities. The Lemonade Syllabus, inspired by the album, acknowledges and tributes Black women through music, poetry, fiction, and references to Black feminist work.

The MSW@USC Diversity Toolkit: A Guide to Discussing Identity, Power and Privilege: Jeremy Goldbach
From the University of Southern California's School of Social Work, this toolkit is meant for anyone who feels there is a lack of productive discourse around issues of diversity and the role of identity in social relationships, both on a micro (individual) and macro (communal) level. Training of this kind can provide historical context about the politics of identity and the dynamics of power and privilege or help build greater self-awareness. 

The Syllabus on Self-Care and Wellness for Social Justice Activists was developed by the Office for Diversity to support our campus community on mental wellness. This syllabus provides beginners-level resources to explain what mental health is, the importance of engaging in self-care, and tips for avoiding burn-out. Additionally, we provide information on local services and resources that may be utilized by students, faculty, and staff of Texas A&M.
