The Geography Department shines a spotlight on justice, diversity, equity and inclusion (JDEI) topics during a series of Zoom Social Hours.
The next Zoom gathering is 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, April 21.
The Geography Department will be hosting a zoom social hour for our students, staff and faculty. We will focus on deconstructing JDEI (What does justice, diversity, equity and inclusion mean to you?). How is the department doing on each of these goals? How can the department improve? How are we doing in our recruitment, curriculum, written and unwritten policies, social relations, communication, and lots more? The hosts for this event are Assistant Professor Jola Ajibade and graduate student Arun Pallathadka..
Before the event, we ask that you fill out this Survey. Also, please explore these materials white supremacy culture; Being nice is not the answer to racial inequality and watch the video The American LOWS. The full documentary is available with an Amazon Prime subscription or for free in 2-minute clips on YouTube. We highly recommend it.
Thank you again for your contributions towards making our department a more inclusive and welcoming environment.
Looking forward to seeing you by 2pm on Wednesday April 21, 2021.
