Critical Race and Whiteness Studies for the Professions
- This event has passed.
How can professional practice be more diverse and racially literate?
In this webinar, I provide an overview of the key concepts in critical race and whiteness studies and outline some strategies for negotiating white privilege and white possession in professional training and education contexts. I situate myself in these teaching practices as a white and non-Indigenous academic and critically examine what facilitating anti-racist teaching means in the relational space of learning. I discuss how critical race and whiteness studies has been applied to a range of professions and the importance of capacitating and addressing workforce needs for racial literacy.
