» Racist Messages on Campus: Respond, Recover & Rebuild from Vandalism, Symbols & Slurs


<p>A representative from the OIE will facilitate a conversation around Racist Messages on Campus using components of a recently released webinar and other supplemental materials and resources.</p> <p>Campuses continue to face race-related posters and graffiti on college campuses across the nation. Racist slurs, symbols and threats written on walls, student nametags and residence hall doors have inflamed students and administrators on a number of campuses, as have posters advertising the White nationalist movement. Social media has also seen its share of tweets and posts demonstrating discrimination and hate.</p> <p>Join Dr. Jamie Washington &ndash; the nationally renowned President and Founder of the Washington Consulting Group and the President and a Founder of the Social Justice Training Institute &ndash; on January 23, 2018. In just 90 minutes, you and your staff will gain a framework for examining campus bigotry; effective tools for educating students and staff on how they can be engaged on topics of social justice; and how to respond in today&rsquo;s age of transparency, both quickly and aggressively.</p> <p>You must be able to address issues of race on campus in a way that encourages respectful dialogue and engagement. Don&rsquo;t miss this opportunity to hear Dr. Washington share his expertise on this topic.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Panelists:</strong></p> <p>Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington is the President &amp; Founder of the Washington Consulting Group (WCG). In October of 2015, WCG was named by the Economist as one of the Top 10 Global Diversity Consultants in the world.
