Inclusive Excellence Book Club: First Meeting
January 31 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Welcome back to the Spring semester!
The Inclusive Excellence committee is excited to welcome you to all its series of events this semester. This first event — on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 12:30 p.m. in Van Hise 1418 — is meant to be a low-stakes introductory and preliminary conversation— one that allows us to reflect on our perspectives and experiences in our lives and at UW-Madison.
To that end, we encourage participants to complete the following exercises and readings, as you’re able to. (All links to PDFs on Box.)
- “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” by Peggy McIntosh
- Readings from Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People (pg. 32-70) by Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald
- “Understanding Inequities ⎼ The Role of Schemas” (Chap 3), from An Inclusive Academy: Achieving Diversity and Excellence by Abigail J. Stewart, Virginia Valian
Note: this is meant to be a safe space—you’re more than welcome to just come and listen!
Hope to see you there!
