Transformational Research: Dismantling Systems of Oppressions in Justice, Education and Health

December 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

This event qualifies for 1.5 hours of credit toward the Gillings School’s annual inclusive excellence training requirement for faculty and staff.

The Race, Racism, and Racial Equity (R3) Symposium, hosted by the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Jordan Institute for Families, and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the UNC School of Social Work, is a series of virtual events that bring together scholars and researchers from across campus to share their work with Carolina and the broader community.

The fifth in the R3 series, “Transformational Research: Dismantling Systems of Oppressions in Justice, Education and Health,” will be held on Thursday, Dec. 9, 1–2:30 p.m.

The event will highlight scholarship from UNC graduate students, research scientists, and faculty from the School of Government, the School of Education, and the School of Public Health. Their work examines racial equity interventions used to dismantle systems of oppression and can help us understand what actions can disrupt racism and create more just systems. Equitable practices call us to center the communities most impacted by our research. Two of the UNC scholars will be joined by their community partners to share their experiences with community-university partnerships.

Registration required.
