Discuss and crowd-source possible solutions to the challenges of bringing anti-racist teaching into a STEM community and classroom in this three-session workshop.
The first session will emphasize the importance of self-reflection and participants will practice discussing their identities and privileges as a basis to begin anti-racist work. Participants will also discuss their experiences with racial inequities and bias occurring both inside and outside academia.
In the second session, participants will discuss and practice ways to address bias and interrupt microaggressions that may occur during conversations around race. The discussion will then move to ways to implement anti-racist teaching into course curriculum and participants will consider and explore ways to use evidence-based strategies to create an equity-based, race-conscious classroom.
The final session will be centered on discussing the challenges of facilitating online workshops on anti-racism. At the end of this series, participants will take away an action plan of how they can engage in anti-racist work on their campuses.
