February 25, 2015 I had the exciting opportunity to co-facilitate UD’s Center for Teaching and Learning’s workshop titled, “How can I manage controversial discussions?” Events on campus and in society at-large often spark important, yet challenging conversations. This workshop helped faculty and staff participants develop strategies for facilitating planned and unplanned difficult dialogues.

During the Spring 2015 term I will teach an undergraduate course titled Race in Society and a graduate-level course titled Racial Stratification.
I’m presenting at the Black Doctoral Network’s 2nd Annual Conference this Saturday at 11:45am. I’m presenting on the panel titled, “Black Couples and Families: Exploring African-American Relationships and Family Life II.

If you are in Ann Arbor area, I invite you to attend a panel discussion about navigating identities and work when your work is focused around one or more of your social identities (e.g. being an LGB/T person working in a job that deals primarily with sexual orientation or gender; being a person of color working in a multicultural center, etc). I’m giving a SHORT presentation and facilitating small group discussions.
