How Can We Address Systemic Racism?

A two-part virtual conversation following the Inclusive Excellence Academy eight-part course, "Understanding Systemic Racism" with Dr. Leslie Picca and Tiffany Taylor Smith
Thursday, November 19, 2020 AND Thursday, December 3, 2020
12:00-1:30 p.m.

The Inclusive Excellence Academy's eight-part course "Understanding Systemic Racism" provided an in-depth examination of the causes, expressions, and effects of systemic racism in U.S. society.  With the knowledge and understanding that this course has given to participants, the question of what we can do to address systemic racism through action remains.  Join faculty, staff, and students in a two-part conversation about what we as individuals and as members of a community can do to take action in ways against racism as it has woven into the fabric of the social systems of which we are part.  Participants will have an opportunity to dive deeper into some of the questions that emerged from the course and, in the context of a sustained dialogue, explore possibilities for action.  Ideally, participants will have participated in one or more of the IEA sessions in this course.  However, anyone with an interest in this topic is welcome to participate.  Please plan to participate on both dates (Nov. 19 and Dec. 3), if possible.

Please register here. We will send information about how to join the Zoom sessions, along with a confirmation of your registration.
