Change It Up! © Anti-Black Racism

November 6, 2023, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm EST

Change It Up! © Anti-Black Racism is an interactive session where participants will learn about ways their identities can influence how they interact with others, as well as strategies they can start using immediately to navigate some of these interactions when harm is involved. This 90 minute workshop is focused on bystander intervention in response to anti-Black racism, however it does not negate or minimize other types of racism, and it also covers unconscious bias, social identities, and social justice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a common language and historical perspective of anti-Black racism and unearned racial advantage/privilege
  • Identify common situations of anti-Black racism based on definitions and historical perspectives taught in the session, including what it looks like in the engineering community, profession, student organizations, research, etc.
  • Interrupt anti-Black racist harmful behavior as you see or experience it
