Black Women in Leadership Panel
Start Date: 9/22/2020Start Time: 8:00 AM
End Date: 9/22/2020End Time: 9:30 AM

Event Description:

Throughout their careers, Black women negotiate unique experiences based on the intersections of gender and race. Many institutional spaces problematize Black women's identities and labour, and this systemic and interpersonal harm can have a profound impact, including causing a ripple effect on their long-term success. For example, COCO states that survey results shared that "within the last three years, ~30% of racialized survey respondents said they had left a job due to an unwelcoming racial environment" (COCO).

Black women are not a monolith, and therefore there are many ways they identify, work and respond to inequality throughout their careers. During this workshop, panellists will share experiential knowledge and research about the diverse experiences of Black women, including how they engage in resistance within their leadership, empower other racialized women, and take accountability for the roles they play within the broader community.

This panel discussion will be moderated by: Lauren Burrows, MA ‘14, Centre for Student Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Wilfrid Laurier University.
