Event Description:
Marquette University students, faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to join Dr. Martha Barry, Racial Justice Director of the YWCA of Southeast Wisconsin, in a powerful five-part series to develop individual capacity to discuss and address issues of racism. Two-hour sessions on campus will allow time for review of content in the form of video clips and exercises as well as listening pairs and small and large group discussions.
The goals of this program are to gain knowledge, build meaningful relationships, and foster personal commitment to address racism. Participants will gain an understanding of implicit bias, the historical implications of race, the role of economic disparity in housing segregation, and the meaning of whiteness and internalized racism, and will become equipped with tools to imagine and build richer relationships across racial differences.
Participation will be limited to 40 and we ask that participants commit to the full five-session series:
6/19, 1-3pm
6/26, 1-3pm
(No session week of July 4)
7/10, 1-3pm
7/17, 1-3pm
7/24, 1-3pm
Register here: For questions, please contact Dr. William Welburn, vice president for inclusive excellence, at or Jacki Black, associate director for Hispanic initiatives, at
