White Fragility Lecture Viewing & Discussion

Hosted by the LSA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Culture Office for LSA Staff

This event is dedicated exclusively to LSA staff

LSA staff are invited to join us for a lunchtime viewing and discussion of a recorded lecture: White Fragility: The New Racism, And More Effective Steps for Undoing Racism

What is white fragility? How does it affect our experience of the world and interactions with those around us? How does it perpetuate racism, both within ourselves and within society? How can we overcome it?

This lecture was delivered to the U-M School of Social Work in January and explores how focusing on our own process of identifying conscious and unconscious racism can lead to more effective efforts to address racism in society. The lecturer, Andy Horning, is a therapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado and a faculty member of the Hoffman Institute, a personal growth retreat site in California. He is also the founder and host of Elephant Talk, a podcast on courageous conversation in relationships.

Registration is first come, first served. Please bring your lunch with you. We will have light snacks and refreshments available.
