Exploring Racial Consciousness Among White Educators and Leaders
Dr. Alexander Kappus, Senior Director for Student Success in the College of Education, NC State University

Where do white folks fit in the work to advance racial diversity, equity, and inclusion? Too often, white educators and leaders avoid engaging altogether due to their fear of making mistakes or simply not knowing where to begin. Advancing racial diversity, equity, and inclusion is a shared responsibility and begins with raising racial consciousness. In this session, participants will explore the pitfalls and possibilities of engaging in racial equity work, recognizing the importance of language, but extending equity beyond words and into action by approaching work with cultural humility. Participants will leave the session with a broader understanding of different ways to enter diversity, equity, and inclusion work as white educators and leaders in the community college environment. NOTE: The session is open to all interested in the topic, though, the content will be geared toward people who identify as white. Theoretical Grounding: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack, Cycle of Socialization, Cultural Humility, Equity Talk to Equity Walk.

Important Note: Limited seating available so please register as soon as possible. Registration will close once all slots have been filled.
