Navigating race and gender in the academy can be tricky. Often, Black women and White women find themselves in situations where knowing the best thing to do or say is not always easy or apparent. Sometimes we are silent or fail to act because we are uncertain whether we should respond or even how to respond in a way that isn’t inappropriate or offensive.
This webinar is just the beginning, as INSIGHT Into Diversity brings Black and White women together to share experiences, perspectives, and solutions to common and often challenging interactions. At a time when many people are overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent racial unrest throughout our country, the willingness and knowledge of how to effectively engage with one another is essential. We hope to prepare participants to be equipped with tools that all women can use to support one another more effectively.
