There Is Nothing Fragile About Racism: A Community Conversation on Decentering Whiteness

Webinar
Friday
Nov 20, 2020
12:00–1:00 p.m.
Event Location

via Zoom

Please join us for our upcoming dije Community Conversation on Decentering Whiteness as part of the School's diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity (dije) initiatives.

"The system of white supremacy was not created by anyone who is alive today. But it is maintained and upheld by everyone who holds white privilege—whether or not you want it or agree with it. It is my desire that this book will help you to question, challenge, and dismantle this system that has hurt and killed so many Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)...This book is for people who are ready to do the work, people who want to create change in the world by activating change within themselves first."
Layla Saad

Exploring Whiteness at both the systemic and personal levels is a key strategy to reckon with the manifestation of White Supremacy in our own institution. Our goal is to support participants in understanding their own Whiteness, positionality, and identity, as well as to develop knowledge about how to decenter whiteness on an institutional level.

Please join us for our upcoming dije Community Conversation on Decentering Whiteness to further understand what it means to decenter Whiteness, to identify ways to divest from Whiteness, and to learn about an upcoming intensive workshop opportunity using the book Me & White Supremacy by Layla Saad.

Community Conversations are times when all members of the SOE community are invited to come together to address issues affecting members of our community, to learn from and with each other, and to promote the values of dije in the SOE. We hope that your attendance can lead to the cultivation of new connections across the SOE community.
