About the Confronting Racism speaker series
The Confronting Racism speaker series is a new program of virtual learning opportunities organized and cosponsored by Graduate, Undergraduate and Equity Affairs (GUEA) and the Office of Workplace Inclusion and Belonging (OWIB). Inspired by President Drake and the work of the UCOP Anti-Racism Task Force, Confronting Racism brings UC lecturers from a broad array of fields to UCOP to highlight contemporary issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion.
All UCOP community members are encouraged to attend these events to broaden their perspective, learn how to adopt anti-racist principles in their own lives and engage in meaningful conversations with guest lecturers and colleagues.
Save the date for our next event, Black Thriving: A UC Irvine Initiative, taking place Feb. 23 from 12–1 p.m. (PT).
