Did you attend the Spring Convocation?

On Friday, April 28, Chancellor Judy Miner hosted a morning of conversation for Foothill, De Anza and district employees to continue the discussion of our opening day focus on student equity.

Tim Wise, author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, was the featured speaker.

Following his presentation, a facilitated discussion followed to reflect on his ideas and their application to our work relating to topics of race, equity and justice.

Were you unable to attend?

You can watch the presentation on YouTube and still join in the conversation with your colleagues.

 

This event was sponsored by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.
