In response to the pandemic, we pivoted an existing graduate writing program and co-created with grad students new virtual peer productivity programming in response to graduate student experience of distancing and lockdown. One student facilitator expressed insight on programming changes that could better serve diverse learners. We had to listen twice to get it right and ultimately facilitate a crucial shift in program design to create an expanded, tailored, and more inclusive environment. The result is serving marginalized grad students beyond our expectations. We intend to sustain both the design and the practice during and after the pandemic.
