Diversity Is Understood, Inclusion Is Political

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 • 4 – 5 p.m.

Having a seat at the table doesn’t mean much when you are devoid of a plate. Being invited to the party doesn’t mean that you have been asked to dance. Diversity too often is only a series of checkmarks. Join us as we breakdown how diversity doesn’t automatically create inclusion. We encourage if you are interested in this session to invite a peer, colleague, or friend at Drexel. “Each one, reach one” is the only way to educate the most!

Presenter:

  • Maurice Cottman Director, Student Center, Multicultural Programming Drexel University

All are welcome! Students, faculty, professional staff, and community providers are encouraged to attend. Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Dr. Veronica Carey, Chair.

Research as Social Justice: Combating Sexual and Reproductive Health Disparities among Black Women

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 • 4 – 5 p.m.

This presentation will highlight the importance of leveraging research and advocacy to combat health inequity while encouraging attendees to view their research as social justice advocacy. The need for collaboration between health disparities and health services researchers and local and regional policy advocates is greater than ever, yet the two entities do not have to be separate entities. Researchers can (and should) be community advocates, and community advocates can (and should) participate in the design and implementation of research activities and the interpretation of research findings. Research is not only for academicians and social justice advocacy is not only for community activists.

Presenter:

  • Tiffany M. Montgomery, PhD, MSHP, RNC-OB

All are welcome! Students, faculty, professional staff and community providers are encouraged to attend. Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Dr. Veronica Carey, Chair.
