OUUC's Standing Up to Racism invites you........
Talking about Race with Theresa Powell
Thursday, March 7, 7-9 pm
Do conversations become uncomfortable when they turn to the subject of racial equity or white privilege? Theresa Powell returns to OUUC to discuss ways to increase understanding and promote actions that can lead to positive outcomes when standing up to racism.
Theresa Powell is Senior Director for Diversity and Inclusion in the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Ms. Powell is the principal advisor to the DSHS Secretary on issues, policies, initiatives and critical incidents related to equity, diversity and inclusion. She has over 20 years of expertise in the areas of equity, diversity, inclusion, communication and negotiation.
Excellent resources for deepening understanding of the dynamics of racism and white privilege are Robin DiAngelo’sWhat Does It Mean to Be White? and White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Understand Racism, both available in OUUC’s library.
