Most "Tuesday Topics" are open to all faculty, students and staff in CNHP, although some may have a more targeted audience.

"Tuesday Topics" are generally held Tuesdays from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. on Drexel's Center City campus. Participants can join in person or sometimes, via livestream.

"America To Me" Real Talk - Session 2

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
12:00-1:00 p.m.
Three Parkway Building, Room 1043 (10th Floor NE)

Real Talk "America To Me" is a series to engage our community of learners around the issues of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. For academic year 2019-2020 we will use the acclaimed documentary series America To Me to explore the challenges and personal obstacles confronting our own students as they navigate their academic careers.

In this talk, we will view clips from the series and engage in dialogue to explore issues of bias and privilege. How does race play out in the choices that students make and how they are defined? What is the impact of racial predictability of student achievement on academic success? Discipline? Socio-emotional health?

About the series: America to Me
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Life Itself) examines racial, economic and class issues in contemporary American education in the ten-part unscripted documentary series America to Me. Poignant and funny, epic and intimate, America to Me spends an academic year at Chicagoland's elite Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF), allowing its students, families, faculty and administration to tell stories of the pressures and challenges teens face today in their own words.

Presenters:
Rachel DeLauder, MA Student, Dance Movement Therapy and Counseling
Lidyvez Sawyer, MPH, 11th Street Family Health Services
Megan E. Schneider, MMS, MSPH, PA-C, Physician Assistant Department

Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. All are welcome!

Recognizing and Knowing When to Use Your Privilege

Tuesday, December 3, 2019
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Three Parkway Building, Room 1043 (10th Floor NE)

This session aims to broaden the dialogue beyond "White Privilege" to include other forms of privilege that might sometimes be taken for granted. Building on the CNHP Color Brave Dialogues, we will use the "Diversity Iceberg" analogy during this interactive session to explore identity and intersectionality. Participants will be able to classify parts of their identities that are privileged and explore how one identity might be privileged in one setting and not in another. Participants will also examine how privilege can be leveraged to advance inclusion in CNHP and beyond.

Presenter:

Patience Ajoff-Foster, Director of Faculty Development and Diversity, Office of Faculty Affairs

Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. All are welcome!
