Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What is Academics for Black Survival and Wellness: The Rewind and Remix? If I participated in the training before, is this for me?
A: Academics for Black Survival and Wellness Week was a success and we appreciate everyone who participated! However, we know that this work goes beyond a week. We heard the requests for more time with the training materials. We also knew we had additional content that we could offer to facilitate growth and accountability for non-Black academics and support wellness for Black academics. This 21-day training and wellness workshop will have something for ALL participants, new and returning.
Q: I really want to register for the full training, but am no longer able to do so. Can I register for individual training topics?
A: Each training module will be available for 3 days and have supplemental synchronous activities. If you are interested in only participating in some of the training topics. Please register for the individual training topics rather than the full training.
Q: I did not get an email with the event information or links to the training modules. What should I do?
A: All of the training materials will be on the website under a members-only page. Make sure you log into the website using your membership log-in if you do not receive an email.
Q: I registered and have not received any communication from the A4BL team, including confirmation, links, or materials.
A: Unfortunately we are finding that a lot of people are having our emails sent to the spam folder, instead of the primary inbox. I'd encourage you to check if this is the case. If that is not the case, try adding an alternative, preferably non-university-affiliated email address as a secondary email in the "profile" section. You should start receiving materials from us.
Q: I want to participate as many days as possible, but have various personal and professional commitments. Should I register for the day anyway and join as I am able, or not register at all?
A: We understand that many participants may be balancing various roles, and we're glad that, despite that, you're considering committing to this initiative! We encourage participants to reflect on their many obligations and make decisions that are congruent with their values, roles, and commitments. We believe that this reflection is important and will provide clarity as individuals make personal decisions about what to attend and why.
