What: Racial Determination: Implications for Individuals & Communities

When/Where: Wednesday, May 17th, in the Jones Room from 2pm to 4pm (may go longer with Q&A)

Race is a critical consideration for professionals working in higher education. Individuals’ experiences are significantly impacted, consciously and unconsciously, by their racial identity development as well as the perceptions, beliefs, and actions of others. This session examines the social construct of race in the United states of America as well as the challenges, limitations, and functions of racial categorization.

Our presenter is DeLa Sweeney (they, them, their) who currently serves as Director, Social Justice Education in Emory Campus Life. DeLa joined the Emory community as an undergraduate student studying Dance & Movement, Religion, and Sociology, subsequently earning a masters and doctorate from Mercer University. They have ten years of professional experience working with educational, non-profit, and mental health organizations. DeLa has focused much of their professional, personal, and academic attention on the topics of social justice and inclusion.
