Diversity Webinar, Jan. 27

On Tuesday, Jan. 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Lee Hall, Room 412, the James Farmer Multicultural Center and the Office of the Special Assistant to the President for Diversity and Inclusion will host a webinar titled:

White Privilege: How It Undermines Our Best Efforts to Diversify and Be Inclusive

Ever notice that despite best intentions and thoughtful planning, efforts to create inclusive and diverse campus communities often fall short of expectations? Have you begun an initiative with high hopes for change only to have them give way to frustration and discouragement? Join this Diverse Webinar, White Privilege: How It Undermines Our Best Efforts to Diversify and Be Inclusive, where we’ll examine the historical patterns and impacts entangled in white supremacy, white privilege, and other forms of oppression. We’ll explore how they show up in our thoughts, interactions, institutions, and cultural practices — creating divisive environments and outcomes despite best intentions. We’ll explore conversational tactics that deepen understanding and engagement especially when viewpoints differ and tensions run high.
