Forum Podcast ep 87, The Theory of Racelessness

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Dr. Sheena Mason (Theory of Racelessness) returns for another timely deep dive into the Theory of Racelessness, which reflects two philosophical positions on “race” that are uncommonly taught & commonly misunderstood: skepticism—the belief that race does not exist in nature—& eliminativism—the position that the concept of race, whatever it is, should be eradicated from human society.

ED Talk February 16: “Less but Better: Challenging the Culture of Infinite Capacity in Higher Ed”

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Loosely based on the book “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” by Greg McKeown, this talk will touch base on overcoming the obstacles faculty face as we are continually asked (or expect ourselves) to do more in our professional lives. The target audience for this ED talk is anybody — but especially faculty — who are currently working more than 40-45 hours/week and find this unsustainable.

Join Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright (Associate Professor of Biology) and Lyz Wendland (Assistant Professor of Art and Design) as they briefly share how they both, independently and using different strategies, created boundaries for themselves during Fall semester, worked 40-hour weeks, and applied McKeown’s lesson: “If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.”

CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom (link provided below; Augsburg login required). This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.

Thursday, Advancing Health Equity for Black Women Through Sponsorship

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: February 17, 2022 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Healthcare
Presenter: Faith Eatman, UChicago Medicine
Cost: Free

Register at: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/advancing-health-equity-for-black-women-through-sponsorship/

Although there have been gains in diversity across various healthcare sectors, leadership positions continue to be disproportionately held by White men. Understanding the impact that social determinants of health like racism and discrimination have on healthcare outcomes for Black women, it is bad business for them to be underrepresented at the decision and policy-making levels in healthcare. How do we solve this pervasive problem?
Join us as we share how the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCM) is leveraging a formal sponsorship program focused on increasing the representation of Black women at the senior leadership level. Also, participants will learn how UCM is using a formal sponsorship program – including critical conversations at the executive leadership level about the lived experience of Black women – to accelerate workplace culture transformation and advance healthcare equity. We will also explore how this may be applied in other organizations.

Learning Outcomes
Learn how advancing more Black women to leadership roles in healthcare impacts health equity
Recognize sponsorship as an accelerator for career advancement and workplace culture transformation
Gain strategies for creating formal sponsorship programs for Black Women in your organization
