Description

Research and scholarship have long informed efforts to dismantle systemic racism. The racial reckoning sparked during 2020 was historic in the widespread acknowledgement of pervasive structural racism and resulting disparate inequities and injustices impacting minoritized communities and communities of color in the US. Institutions across the nation have expressed commitments to address racism in their organizations. The question now is how to move from intention to action and how to enact structural change that is transformational and sustainable.

In this session, we draw on the collective expertise and experience of University of Michigan scholars who have dedicated their careers to applying their scholarship to advance anti-racism and facilitate systemic change. Join us for an interdisciplinary conversation as we discuss how research and practice efforts around anti-racism are manifested in their respective fields, what it means to conduct research on race and racism in the current socio-political context, and the lessons these scholars have learned about engaging anti-racism in the academy.

Moderated by Dr. Tabbye Chavous, NCID Director, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; and Professor of Education and Psychology.
