Faculty Advancement and Success Workshop Series

The United States has experienced a volatile relationship with race since its founding, and discussions around race in academia consistently mirror the ongoing challenges that we experience in our broader society. Faculty engage with race in both personal and professional relationships with colleagues and collaborators, with students through classroom discourse and as mentors, and as managers of staff in our academic units. In this workshop, faculty will consider the ways that race specifically influences their work and interactions with others, and also learn about skills and strategies that will help lead to more equitable practices and define your role as a faculty in confronting racism.

This event is not open to the public. Attendees must be current Duke faculty.
