Transformative Allyship Workshop for Faculty and Staff
Georgetown welcomes colleagues from the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach at our fellow Jesuit institution, University of San Francisco to facilitate this workshop. How can those of us concerned with the formation and realization of justice through our work in higher education navigate the lasting legacies of inequity built into the foundations of our institutions? In this workshop, Georgetown staff and faculty will work together in formation towards understanding how the work towards radical equity and inclusion is affected by the racial and gendered campus power dynamics within which we operate, particularly when it comes to allyship and collaboration. Using grounding Jesuit values and processing approaches, we hope to work towards cultivating the thoughtful action that is required of us to move from strong words to courageous action in building transformative allyship.
These events are part of Georgetown University's "Let Freedom Ring!" Initiative honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For more information about the Initiative and 2017 events, please visit:
