Book Discussion Group
Each week, IEEI will hold two separate hour-long virtual meetings for both faculty and students where one chapter from the book will be covered, followed by a discussion on the implications for the classroom. Working with our facilitators we aim to cultivate an open and safe discussion space regarding racial inequality and how to create an inclusive classroom.
IEEI and its partners will provide a free physical copy of the book for all participants. No advance reading is required. Registration links are below for faculty and students respectively.
All are welcome to join, and if you have questions or would like additional information, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
