Unpacking Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility – A NASJE Webinar

NASJE’s Diversity, Fairness, and Access Committee invites you to join a them on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at 1:00pm Eastern for a webinar on the work of Dr. Robin DiAngelo.

Talking to the majority social group about racism is often fraught with hostility, guilt, and shame. Most educators from a majority social group who teach fairness have “never had to bear witness to the pain of racism experienced by people of color” according to Dr. Robin DiAngelo.

During this webinar, we will examine the work of Dr. DiAngelo on dealing with the defensiveness and related reactions and moves by majority persons that appear in discussions of racial issues and racism and that hinder meaningful cross-racial dialogue.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the misconception of racism;
  • Recognize how privilege can contribute to the oppression of others;
  • Manage defensiveness, denial, and deflection in fairness education; and,
  • Mindfully manage defensiveness, denial, and deflection in yourself.
