PSD Roundtable Talks: Engaging in Inclusive Conversations (Suggested Tools)

Oct. 21

12:00–1:00 pm

The Physical Sciences Division is hosting a series of roundtable talks exploring equity, diversity, and inclusion topics ranging from race and privilege to anti-racism. Through honest conversations aimed at building awareness, we can reflect on our understanding of EDI and identify how, as individuals and collectively, we can address the existence and extent of institutional racism and its impacts. The talks will include a maximum of 10 participants and two facilitators so that each individual can start to engage in the topic. Because of the size limit and the necessity of examining power dynamics inherent in higher education, the initial sessions are open only to PSD faculty members and other academic appointees. Three topics are offered this quarter and it is recommended that they be taken in succession as a cluster (within a short timeframe).
