Developing Anti-Oppressive Communities: Supporting Black Students and Mentees

Aug 18, 2020, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Online webinar

This webinar will provide attendees with opportunities to identify and reflect on their privileges and biases and how these impact their ability to effectively serve as teachers and scholars. The presenter will discuss strategies for identifying and combating anti-Black racism in classrooms and research groups, how to most effectively support Black students and colleagues, and how to proactively contribute to diverse and inclusive campus communities, whether those be classrooms, research teams, labs, or committees. The presenter will also address how the unequal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn and the recent racist killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Arbery impact black research assistants and postdocs and the role of faculty and PIs in supporting Black mentees during the present historical moment.
