For Us, By Us: A Conversation about Racism, Discrimination and Bias in Higher Education
In addition to navigating structural racism, discrimination, and bias in higher education, there are numerous and profound barriers to equity and advancing racial justice for underrepresented faculty. Scholars of the the HIV Intervention Science Training Program for Underrepresented New Investigators (HISTP) from four universities will host a roundtable conversation addressing these barriers, focusing on these questions:

What should BIPOC faculty look for in an institution to ensure they will be supported as BIPOC faculty rather than through tokenism? Where and how can they get honest answers about the institution’s dynamics and culture?

How can faculty of color avoid burnout—common among BIPOC faculty due to many factors—and what policies can institutions implement to aid in this hefty task?

How can critical race theory scholars frame their work to effectively change systems and promote consciousness through new platforms, including social media?

The discussion will be moderated by Elwin Wu, HISTP's co-director and a professor at the Columbia School of Social Work, and by Omar Martinez, an associate professor of social work at the Temple University College of Public Health. A Q&A session will follow.
