Workshop: 'Sustaining Conversations on Racism, Identity, and our Humanity with our Students'

Friday, April 13, 2018

Engleman Hall - Room B121

Do you feel like you are entering uncharted territory when it comes to talking about race, power, privilege, or oppression with your students? Are you afraid of how others may respond to discussing these challenging topics? This workshop will help faculty and other professionals learn to respond skillfully and sensitively to approach topics concerning race, power, privilege, and oppression.

Workshop attendees will also learn strategies to deal with the emotional responses these topics provoke from students.

Join us for an interactive workshop led by the authors of a newly published text, Sustaining Conversations on Racism, Identity, and our Mutual Humanity: Steve Burghardt, Kalima DeSuze, Linda Lausell Bryant, & Mohan Vinjamuri.

The first 30 to register and attend this workshop will receive a free copy of the speakers' newly published text on this topic!

Light refreshments will be served • RSVP by 4/11 by clicking below:
