Diversity — a thought, not an afterthought; an action, not a reaction.
Learning about race and Whiteness can be confusing, contentious, and frightening, particularly for White people. Even just asking questions about race can be scary because we are afraid of what our questions might reveal about our ignorance or bias. Ali Michael invites us to start this conversation with a vision that is worth working for: a healthy multiracial community. Working backwards from that vision, what skills and competencies do White people need in order to be a part of creating that community? Ali Michael is a White woman and will share many stories from her life and research.
