Webinar: University Diversity Roundtable series, “Toward Racial Equity at Penn State”
June 30, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
In a new series of roundtable conversations titled “Toward Racial Equity at Penn State: Social Difference, Social Equity and Social Change,” University leaders aim to engage the Penn State community in dialogue to advance greater equity and inclusion for students, faculty and staff from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.
The first of these conversations is on “Race, Our Campus Climate and Workplace.” Co-sponsored by the University’s Division for Development and Alumni Relations, WPSU and the Office of the Vice Provost for Equity, the conversation will feature faculty members, deans and alumni speaking to their experiences on being a person of color navigating a mostly white campus and workplace.
The series will continue with two additional roundtable discussions during the fall semester. A conversation scheduled for Sept. 8, titled “Race, Teaching and Learning in our Current Climate,” will explore the experience of people of color within predominately white classrooms. The series concludes on Nov. 5 with a conversation titled “Race in the Community,” which will focus on the experiences of people of color living within predominately white communities.
