On the Meaning of Being an Anti-Racist University: Working Actively to End Systemic Racism for the Common Good
Repeats every 1 Year(s), from 09:00 AM - 02:30 PM

Aligned with the goals ofThe Flyers Plan for Community Excellence (the University of Dayton’s strategic plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion), the “Open Letter on Becoming an Anti-Racist University” enacts action-oriented change to improve diversity, equity, and inclusivity in our institution. As our community embraces this commitment, this session will consider the meaning and implications of anti-racism and being anti-racist. What does it mean to be an anti-racist Institution? How does anti-racism relate to the Marianist mission of our institution? What frameworks and action paths inform anti-racism and how do they combat systemic racism? How can I work towards becoming anti-racist in my personal and professional life? This interactive session will review key ideas from Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s books and presentations during his two-day visit to UD in 2019, and will provide scenarios and resources to clarify the meaning of anti-racism as well as facilitate its praxis and application.

To register for any of our sessions, please go to the UD HR CE Portal. Contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion if you have any questions.
