Our Girls, Our World
Our Girls, Our World Webinar Series
Following the widespread protests against police violence and the growing visibility of the Black Lives Matter movement, many Americans are learning more about how our history of racism continues to shape society for Black and Brown people. As a friend of WSG and supporter of our mission, you may be wondering how the issues in the news impact students, graduates, and their families. You may also be overwhelmed by the vast amount of scholarship and not know where to start investigating topics in racial equity. Introducing: “Our Girls, Our World”, a seminar series presented by WSG President Dr. Beth Reaves, WSG Trustee Dr. Maranda Ward (Assistant Professor and Emerging Scholars Fellow at George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences) and special guests. Our Girls, Our World will present an introduction to some of the complex racial equity topics that particularly impact our students and inform our educational approach. The seminar series is designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about racial equity at WSG, especially those who are new to the conversation.
Our Girls, Our World: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Schools
April 29, 2021, 4:00pm EDT on Zoom
During the third session of our series on racial equity topics, we will explore how WSG alumnae experience diversity, equity, and inclusion in their post-WSG educational settings, whether they attend a PWI (Primarily White Institution), a demographically mixed school, or an historically Black institution. How is DEI work approached in different school settings? What challenges do students of color, particularly Black girls, face in school? What are schools doing to alleviate those challenges and create welcoming environments for all students, especially as conversations about race and racism are at the forefront of national dialogues?
