Recurring Event Descriptions
Community Reading Group
The Community Reading Group is a brown-bag lunch series open to all community members. We gather from noon to 1 p.m. once a month to discuss reading materials of relevance to the work promoted by the Office of Diversity and Equity. The readings (or videos- we use the term "readings" loosely) will be available on the Office of Diversity and Equity website ahead of time. The goal of these conversations is to engage all members of the Clark community in a congenial conversation that we hope will spark new ways of thinking about inclusivity and diversity. Bring your lunch and join us!
Bring a friend and bring your lunch for an hour of conversation! Open Dialogues address the intersection of identity, inclusion, and current events. Each week, we will discuss a new topic based on events at Clark or in the world around us.
Faculty and Staff Affinity Group Gatherings
Faculty and Staff from historically disadvantaged groups crave opportunities to network, support each other, and build community. To meet this need, we host monthly gatherings for the various staff and faculty groups who need and want this connection. Currently we have regular gatherings for faculty and staff of color, LGBTQIA faculty and staff, and female identified administrators.
This fall, we will be starting groups for older Clark college employees (55+) and a group for allies.
If members of other historically disadvantaged groups would like to form a group, please contact the Office of Diversity and Equity.
Watch and Talk
Film and television offer unique perspectives of how we conceive of ourselves and others as well as create narratives around how we deal with difference. Anything from the latest action blockbuster hit to a classic documentary about life in the desert could be fertile ground for discussing the impact of race, class, gender, language, culture, and a multitude of other identities on our lives. Watch and Talks are a casual opportunity to view and discuss the power of culture.
Power and Privilege in the Classroom Series
The series consists of student panels that discuss different topics related to Power, Privilege and Inequality. The students share their experiences of power and privilege in the classroom. For further information go to http://www.clark.edu/tlc/upcoming_events.php
