Diversity Committee kicks off roundtable discussion series on equality in America

Wed, 01/28/2015 - 13:48
pOn Tuesday, the Diversity Committee hosted its first roundtable discussion in a three-part series, titled “From Brown to the Present.” The series is intended to encourage discourse around the intersection of race, gender and equality in America. /ppbr /The kick off discussion was titled “From Brown to the Present: The Road Beyond Michael Brown’s Ferguson and Eric Garner’s Staten Island,” with a focus on race inequality. br /br /It opened with Mellody Hobson’s Ted Talks presentation called “Color blind or color brave?” Hobson told the story of how her swim coach made her complete drills holding her breath underwater repeatedly. When she was finished, she asked why she had to do breath holding exercises instead of swimming. /ppHer coach responded, quot;That drill was to make you comfortable being uncomfortable because that's how most of us spend our days.quot;/ppquot;It is time to be comfortable with having the uncomfortable conversation about race ... If we truly believe in real equal rights and equal opportunity in America, we have to have real conversations on this issue. We have to be willing to have proactive conversations on race. Not because it's the right thing to do, but because it's the smart thing to do; because our businesses, our products, our science, our resarch, all of that will be better with greater diversity ,” Hobson said. br /br /Hobson’s thoughts segued into the roundtable participants’ broader discussion. Brandeis students cited their biggest hurdle was in overcoming discomfort on bringing up race-related conversations in casual settings. As lawyers, one asked, quot;how do we listen without being dismissive?quot;/pp“You have to learn about the experience of others, of people not like you, in order to best serve them,” another student added. /ppIn addition to the Ted Talks presentation, the discussions were inspired by four readings: /pulliThe American Psychological Association’s Public Information Statement in Response to the Shooting Death of Michael Brown;/liliPeople – Including Cops – See Black Kids as Less Innocent and Less Young than White Kids;/liliSCOTUS’ Racial Blind Spot: Why a small group of elites is dragging America backwards; /liliWhat Black Parents Tell Their Sons About the Police./li/ulpThe Diversity Committee’s series will continue March 3 from 12:15-2 p.m. in Cox Lounge, with a roundtable discussion on Economic Inequality.br /br /It will conclude April 7 with a discussion on Gender Inequality./p
