We invite you to join us for an important faculty development opportunity with Dr. Terri Givens, founder/CEO of Brighter Higher Ed, political scientist, consultant, and a former vice provost and provost. Radical Empathy: Finding a Path to Bridging Racial Divides addresses issues of structural racism and the persistence of inequality and offers practical steps for calling out racism and affecting radical social change. Dr. Givens will call for us to move beyond an understanding of others’ lives and pain to understand the origins of our biases, including internalized oppression. Please join us for a session that will be part presentation and part workshop.
