“Advocating for Students of Color: There's More You Can Do” is a virtual professional development experience for higher education faculty and administrators who are actively engaged in promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion within the mathematical sciences. The series has been conceived and organized by Pamela E. Harris (Williams College), Aris Winger (Georgia Gwinnett College), and Michael Young (Iowa State University).
This four-part webinar series is anchored in the belief that implementing small changes can compound to drastic and large-scale transformation. By focusing on how to better advocate for students in the classroom, department(s), institution, and the mathematics community, the organizing team will guide participants to think critically about their practice and discuss concrete changes participants can implement. The goal is to share and commit to implementing changes in a way that is pragmatic, meaningful and that cultivates cultures in which all students are seen, valued, and validated.
