A Post-election Conversation on Race and Racism

Please register here: https://events.nyu.edu/event/278664-1

Join us for a community-centered discussion on race and racism in the wake of the 2020 presidential election. Open to all students in the NYU Community.

Regardless of the outcome of the presidential election, the casting of ballots presents a moment for evaluating the ongoing national conversation around race and racism and for thinking about where we can go from here. This session brings members of our community together for a discussion designed to empower students to find their roles as agents of change at NYU and beyond.

Participants will choose a breakout room based on the themes of Prison and Policing, Black Lives Matter, Gender & Justice, LGBTQ+ Rights, Radical Empathy, Future Reflections, and Utopian Futures. These discussions, and grounding of the space will be facilitated and supported by:

  • Nico Le Blanc, Associate Director, Diversity & Inclusion, NYU Stern School of Business
  • Robert Taylor Jr., Senior Operations Associate & Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Specialist, NYU Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life
  • Maria Ramirez, M.A., Director of Equity Initiatives, Office of Equity, Belonging & Community Action, Steinhardt Global Inclusion Officer
