This workshop is for white graduate students who want to challenge the racism around them, and specifically in educational settings. If you are a graduate student who is searching for ways to strengthen your work for racial justice, we encourage you to attend this three-part series workshop. While all students are welcomed to attend, this workshop is intended for white folks, who want a better understanding of how white privilege and racism operate in society and inside of them.
Renee Shank, PhD will facilitate this three-part series workshop. The first session will be March 3 for 90 minutes. We encourage students to attend the first session as the foundation for the other two, 60-minute sessions that will be offered later on in spring quarter. Below are the dates and times of all three workshop sessions:
Friday, March 3 12:00 pm (Miller Hall 212)
Friday, April 7 12:00 pm (Location TBD)
Thursday, May 11 12:00 pm ( Location TBD)
Space is limited; please let us know you are attending by completing the Catalyst Survey.
PhD. Renee Shank recently finished her Ph.D in multicultural education with a specialization in racial discourse in teacher education.
