Amplifying Student Voices – next Saturday 5/5

Amplifying Student Voices: Conversations on Race, Equity, and Inclusion in Education will take place this Saturday!  This is a Seed Grant sponsored event on May 5, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM at the Ethnic Cultural Center that builds on the work that began at the Robinson Center’s Equity Summit in February 2017. In response to requests from youth in our community, this event is an opportunity for high school youth and undergraduates to plan, organize and contribute to discussions related to race and equity in education. We are excited to have you contribute your ideas to a larger conversation of diversity and equity in our community.

What will this event look like?

The event will start with opening remarks from Dr. Ed Taylor, Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs; Dr. Gabriel Gallardo, Associate Vice President for Student Services & Academic Support in OMA&D; Kendra Canton, Director of Diversity Efforts at ASUW and a UW senior studying Medical Anthropology and Global Health; and Kim Anh Tran, a UW sophomore studying Public Health.

After lunch participants will have their choice of student-led breakout sessions to attend, such as: The Reality of Impostor SyndromeLet’s Talk About ItStereotypes and Education in America, and Black Girl in Progress.
