In celebration of CITL’s 5th Annual Convocation, CITL and the HSI Initiatives are honored to present a talk by renowned equity pioneer Estela Bensimon. Considered a Higher Ed legend, Bensimon has published extensively about equity, organizational learning, practitioner inquiry, and institutional change, including 2019's From Equity Talk to Equity Walk, which she coauthored.
The good news is that the word “equity” is no longer feared as was the case two decades ago when people felt more comfortable with diversity talk. On the other hand, the popular appropriation of “equity” risks being whitewashed and decoupled from racial justice. Professor Bensimon will speak about engaging in everyday practices guided by racial equity as corrective justice, anti-racist action, and decentering of whiteness.
