Reconnecting Learners and Educators Across Race on Anti-racist Accountability

While dismantling racist systems and policies, many of us also want to develop anti-racist *practices.* One black female professor and white male educational developer met through anti-racist reading groups but wished to lean into discomfort more intensively. We connected 7 faculty, 4 staff, 3 undergraduates, and 2 graduate students, identifying variously as black, white, Asian, Jewish and Middle-Eastern. Throughout seven 90-minute meetings, we built trust by first disclosing our edges, freed up voices with anonymous docs, and practiced stepping into challenging scenarios. Join us to exchange lessons learned doing related work, or to explore doing so in your context.
