“Healing Racism Beyond the Dialogue: Basic Strategies at Four Levels of Socialization and Oppression,” hosted by University of Phoenix’s Office of Educational Equity

By Melany Stroupe

University of Phoenix’s educational equity and inclusion webinar series continues on Thursday, May 20 2021, at 11 a.m. PDT with the second of a two-part series on understanding racism and its impact on all aspects of society.

Recent events in our country brought about a renewed commitment to healing racism. But many people struggle to define racism or understand what they can do to help heal it. The webinar will focus on strategies for healing at a personal, group, institutional and systemic level.

Jacqueline Starks, certified diversity executive, will serve as the host of the webinar. Starks has more than 25 years of experience as a social justice and sustainability change agent. She has received numerous recognitions including the Veora E. Johnson Spirit of Unity Award for Diversity and Inclusion from the Mesa, Martin Luther King Jr Committee and the Barry Goldwater Human Rights Award from Equality Arizona. Starks is also co-lead of the Healing Racism Committee and co-founder of the Arizona Multicultural Education Conference.

This webinar is the latest in a series of free educational equity webinars held on the third Thursday of every month by the Office of Educational Equity at University of Phoenix. The webinar series promotes cultural understanding and thought leadership on issues relating to diversity and inclusion.
