  • Wednesday, April 07, 2021 Centering the Margin Series

    Centering the Margin Series

    The Diversity and Inclusion Office invites you to join us for our Centering the Margins Series.  This features local and national speakers that present new or partial formed DEI initiatives.  This informal venue is designed to spark inquiry and innovation in the DEI space. All Centering the Margins talks will focus on the unique perspectives related to the experiences of diverse communities.  The series intentionally centers on the narratives of silenced communities and aims to create an educational space for participants to discuss the systemic barriers that impact marginalized groups. This series strives to create a community that can discuss, bond, and celebrate the unique needs, and concerns associated with intersections of identity, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender identity & expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability. This month we will be joined by Stephenie C. Lemon, Ph.D., MS, Professor and Division Chief of Preventative and Behavioral Medicine, Dept. of Quantitative Health Sciences to discuss “Community engaged research as a way to promote equity in our communities: How UMass makes a difference” This talk will describe programs and resources for community engaged research at UMass Medical School, provide examples of collaborative research that addresses local priorities and describe how our research enterprise supports local public health practice, emphasizing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Celebrating Change with Action Planning: This week, we'll share the last of Camara Jones' TED Talk metaphors about the conveyor belt and review some of the many options for moving forward and taking action. We'd like to return to the idea raised during the 3/22 lunch of developing a bystander training to respond to structural racism instead of focusing on the personally-mediated. What would that look like? ​
