The term “Whiteness” refers to race privilege, a way of seeing the world, and “a set of cultural practices that are usually unmarked and unnamed" (Frankenberg, in DiAngelo, 2011, p. 56). Whiteness is pervasive in American society, and is a barrier to inclusion and equity.

 

This EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable, facilitated by Equity Fellow Dr. Sharon Radd, offers a critical but supportive environment to examine one's “personal, local, and immediate” (Singleton, 2005) connections to Whiteness, and consider how to disrupt rather than perpetuate it.
