FAS 5: Your Role as Faculty in Confronting Racism and Fostering an Equitable Climate
Thursday, October 22, 3:00 to 4:30
Kimberly Hewitt, Vice President for Institutional Equity and Chief Diversity Officer
Discussions around race in academia reflect the ongoing challenges we experience in broader society, and faculty often hold important roles at the forefront of the discourse. Faculty engage with race in both personal and professional relationships with colleagues and collaborators, with students through classroom discourse and as mentors and as managers of staff in our academic units. In this workshop, participants will consider the ways that race specifically influences their work and interactions with others, and also practice skills and strategies that can lead to more equitable practices. This event is not open to the public. Attendees must be current Duke faculty.
