Dr. Frances E. Kendall, author of the chapter “A White Woman Talks to Other White Women” in Dr. Karen Dace’s book Unlikely Allies in the Academy: Women of Color and White Women in Conversation continues last fall’s discussion and begins facilitating meaningful dialogue about coalition and trust building to cultivate allies towards building a more inclusive and equitable UNT. Registration is open to ALL UNT faculty, staff and students regardless of gender or role. A special session for members of UNT’s identity-based organizations will follow the lunch address to begin discussions about long-term efforts to develop bonding and bridging capital.
We recommend downloading the presentation by Dr. Karen Dace and reading through her topic regarding topics aimed at faculty women and professional staff women including cultural humility, intersectionality and improving our inclusive climate here at UNT.
