LEAD: “I Can’t Breathe”—A Call to Action for Leaders in Higher Education

Friday, June 12, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EDT

LEAD, Leading Equity and Diversity, is a series of conversations where attendees have the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of guests who lead DEI initiatives. This LEAD conversation will address how faculty, staff, and student leaders in higher education can address the trauma that marginalized populations in our community are facing due to racism and societal injustice. This session will focus on traumas facing the Black community with Angie Stewart (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program Lead, Organizational Learning), Dr. Stephen Ward (Director, Semester in Detroit; Associate Professor Residential College, Department of Afroamerican and African Studies) and Justin Woods (M.B.A./M.S.W. Candidate; Founder at EQuity Social Venture) as featured guests.
