The STEM LEAF Team would like to invite all faculty and staff to a virtual speaker series to focus on intersectionality and antiracism at Clarkson University.
We commit with the proponents of Black Lives Matter “to struggle together, and to imagine and create a world free of anti-Blackness, where every Black person has the social, economic, and political power to thrive.”
Further, as members of the national ADVANCE community we stand, as and with women, in recognition of the intersectionality (Kimberlé Crenshaw, 1989) of race and gender that results in unique experiences for Black women, especially discrimination that can compound experiences of marginalization and invisibility.
As people privileged by education and opportunity, we collectively pledge to lessen the burden of Black people by actively building our individual and collective capacity to act against bias and injustice, and pursue equity and inclusion, not just during times of crisis but in daily acts of courage.
Guest speakers will include founder and CEO of Melanina, LLC and our own trustee, Dr. Simoon Cannon, long-time GE Chief Diversity Officer, Deb Elam, and global diversity and inclusion educator, coach, and consultant, Tanya Odom.
Please see attached flyer for dates and times. The Zoom link for our second speaker (August 25th at 2 pm) can be found here: https://clarkson.zoom.us/j/92726362708?pwd=bklHUmd6cFZ6WFlDR2U0SVUycWJQZz09
