  • “The Problem with the Phrase “Women and Minorities”: Intersectionality, An Indispensable Critical Theoretical Framework for Behavioral and Social Health Science Research”

    Friday, September 25, 2020
     12:00 PM – 12:55 PM
    Zoom ID: 927 3899 8271

    Historically rooted in Black feminist activism, intersectionality is a critical theoretical framework that posits that power and social inequity are differently structured, and vary based on people’s multiple and intersecting demographic positions (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, gender and sexual minority status, socioeconomic status). Intersectionality has made impressive inroads within the behavioral and social health sciences (BSHS) in recent years. It enhances BSHS research by challenging “single-axis” assumptions such as that connoted by the phrase “women and minorities,” and centering the experiences and needs of people marginalized by intersectional discrimination. This presentation will: (1) provide an overview of intersectionality, its history, and core tenets; (2) describe how intersectionality challenges conventional assumptions about groups of people and social issues; (3) highlight applications of intersectionality to NIH-funded health research with U.S. Black men; and (4) discuss why critical perspectives such as intersectionality are indispensable for BSGS researchers committed to social justice work.

     

    Lisa Bowleg, Ph.D. is Professor of Applied Social Psychology in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at The George Washington University (GW), Director of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Core of the DC-Center for AIDS Research, and the Founding Director of the Intersectionality Training Institute at GW. She is a leading scholar of the application of intersectionality to social and behavioral science research, as well as research focused on HIV prevention and sexuality in Black communities.

  • The School of Public Health’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion invites all School students, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to a webinar led by Shontay Delalue, Vice President of Institutional Equity and Diversity and Interim Senior Associate Dean in the Division of Biology and Medicine, and Lawrence Angelo, Institutional Equity Officer in Brown University’s Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity, to provide an overview of the University’s Bias Incident Reporting System.

    In this training, we will review what constitutes a bias incident, the rationale for situating the bias reporting system at the University level, the work of the Bias Review Team, and how data is fed back to the community annually to guide refinements in programming to address climate.

    Following Shontay Delalue and Lawrence Angelo’s presentation, attendees are invited to engage in conversation via Q&A.

  • The School of Public Health’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion and Office of Academic Affairs invites School faculty engaged in teaching, graduate program directors, director of undergraduate studies, curriculum committee members, and chairs/vice chairs to this training workshop to support faculty to further enhance and transform their teaching of public health to more rigorously address race, racism, and racial bias. This workshop will be led by Associate Dean Caroline Kuo, with content vetted by Dr. Benjamin Reese. Dr. Reese is President of BENREESE, LLC., a global diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting firm. He is the former Vice President of the Office for Institutional Equity at Duke University and Duke University Health System, Duke University’s Chief Diversity Officer, and is a licensed clinical psychologist. He is also adjunct professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Community Medicine and Family Health, and Psychology and Neuroscience.

    The workshop will cover the following content:

    • How to set norms and create a common foundation for engaging in learning around these topics effectively in the classroom.
    • Strategies for facilitating interactions between faculty and students and between students to support a space for effective learning.
    • Discussing how to re-work competencies and content with attention to race, racism, and racial bias in public health.

    The last portion of the workshop will divide faculty by department, where faculty can engage in peer-to-peer sharing on strategies that have worked well for them, and/or to discuss challenges. If you are able to attend, please complete this registration form . A Zoom webinar link will be emailed to you in advance of the meeting.

    Following this workshop, starting September 21st, faculty will have an opportunity to work through specific course content in detailed 1-on-1 or small group coaching sessions with Dr. Reese to troubleshoot any challenges they encounter as they implement new changes in their course, or to have specific questions answered as they begin to re-work their course. There is no structure to these informal sessions - faculty should use these sessions with Dr. Reese in whatever way is most useful to you. If you already know you want a 1-on-1 or small group session (15 slots available on a first come first serve basis, please sign up using this form ).
