Join Us for an Upcoming Event
Calls on US and Canadian institutions to address their historical ties to racial discrimination and oppression have intensified across 2020 and 2021. However, many college and university leaders often find their actions constrained to symbolic efforts that fail to address underlying context and ultimately contribute to repeated cycles of frustration and flashpoints on campus. Even leaders committed to systemic change often struggle to truly grapple with and meaningfully address legacies of racial injustice.
This roundtable event will help higher education leaders understand the biggest change management barriers preventing bold change. Attendees will learn why some influential stakeholders see risk in addressing historical legacies of racism on campus and resist transformation as a result. Participants will then explore a framework to help overcome risk aversion and secure buy-in to more effectively shepherd campus through change.
In conversation with EAB experts and interactive, small group breakout sessions participants will:
- Identify the hidden reasons behind slow progress on addressing legacies of racism
- Learn how to leverage risk mitigation strategies to meaningfully advance reckoning work on campus
- Learn and practice change management strategies with peers across Canada and the United States
This session is limited to Presidents, Provosts, Vice Presidents for Student Affairs, Chief Diversity Officers and Vice Presidents of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Registration for this session is limited to three attendees per institution.
- Tuesday, June 7 | 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
