Anti-Racism in Academia (ARiA): Listen (a Leadership Ecosystem Webinar)

In response to renewed dialogue across professional associations and within our personal lives, a small group of community leaders spanning multiple academic institutions have developed a program to promote anti-racism in higher ed – Anti-Racism in Academia: A Learning Journey (ARiA). The program is a 5-part discussion series, taking place from August to December 2020, outlining an action-oriented approach to dismantling racism in our own spheres through conscious decisions and intentional actions.

For September, the ARiA series presents Part 2: Listen, one of the most important elements of proactively and respectfully engaging with people from different racial backgrounds. NERCOMP has partnered with ARiA to take part in this very important conversation, so this month’s Leadership Ecosystem event will bring together panelists for a facilitated conversation that reaches across race, gender and backgrounds to discuss the role of active listening in developing a more inclusive culture.
