Description

Presenter: MaryAnne Davey, director of the Mercy Center for Spiritual Life

Critical concern: Racism

Antiracism accountability for white identifying employees is critical for progress and education as a mercy institution of higher learning. Waking up to the reality of being a white person can pose many challenges in a diverse environment. With the pandemic of racism deeply rooted in America, white people can move through life without the knowledge or understanding of how their seemingly typical actions can have an adverse effect on communities of color. This session will explore understanding the white identity, what it takes to move toward antiracism and how espousing and sustaining this posture in the classroom and work setting allows for deeper safety and trust with the BIPOC community.
