TopicWomen of Color Need Courageous Allies in the Academy, Part 2: So You Have Decided to be an Ally—Now What? An Open Dialogue with White and Black Women on the Commitment of Allyship
DescriptionJoin us for Part 2 of INSIGHT Into Diversity's discussion series where Black and White women in academia explore how White women colleagues can be allies in the fight for racial and gender equity.
Navigating race and gender in the academy can be tricky. Often, Black 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 how to respond in a way that isn’t inappropriate or offensive or even if we should respond at all in these types of situations.
In Part 2 of our webinar series, Black women in the Academy will share their perspectives on what real allyship and commitment mean, the importance of understanding one's own motives, and what White women can expect to encounter in doing the work. White women will share their journeys and how they continue to evolve and educate themselves.
We hope to prepare participants to be equipped with the understanding and tools that all women can use to support one another more effectively.
