The goal of this initial session is to provide a necessary space for dialogue that acknowledges the deep-rooted history of marginalization due to ingrained systemic oppression which has resulted in and is still the cause of pain within the Black community. Further, we hope to explore and establish a plan of action so that we can become more active and effective allies.

We will be joined by:

  • Kim Gholston, MHA, SPHR, Associate Vice President for Human Resources & Chief Diversity Officer
  • Ana E. Núñez, MD, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Professor in the College of Medicine
  • Leon McCrea II, MD, MPH, Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Associate Professor in the College of Medicine
  • Michael Ryan, PhD, Director of Academic Support and Graduate Pipeline Programs in the Graduate College, Associate Department Head of Graduate Studies & Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental in the College of Engineering
  • And several student leaders and representatives from Drexel's graduate community
Forums addressing more specific ways to confront anti-Blackness within the Drexel graduate community itself, and within our surrounding local community relationships, are also necessary. We hope you will join us as we come together to listen carefully to your voices and reflect on efforts to enact change. We know that one dialogue is not the solution and that we must continue to put in the work.
