 TEMPO Talks: Are We Awake Yet?
Critical Consciousness and the Need for White Racial Resilience

Date: Friday, September 11
Noon to 1:00 p.m.

Event Description: 
By now, you have likely heard about White Fragility, the overwhelming default of discomfort and defensiveness on the part of a white person when confronted with information about racial inequality and injustice. How do we become less fragile? Just like any fitness plan: we build our muscles. And specifically, we become resilient. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just experiences or programs, it is a strength of mind and character. For white women, it requires us to think against the grain of our whiteness to unlearn deep, invisible patterns and to develop our own powerful sense of racial consciousness. Join Dr. Gretchen Jameson and Erickajoy Daniels for an open conversation about the long-term investment required to not only wake up to issues of race in America, but to become resilient allies.
