Embracing Differences Week

Culture Weavers presents Embracing Differences: Knowledge Sharing, Learning, Thinking, Reflecting

Spend some time during the week in thought-provoking virtual conversation, reading, writing, listening and meditation. Over the last few months, the Culture Weavers team has been compassionately and diligently working towards bringing awareness to unconscious bias and issues of inequity in the workplace. In light of recent events, and Dr. Crow’s call to action last week, the team has rapidly completed a program that had been planned for later this year. This is step one. Join us and create the momentum needed for change.

Message from Dr. Crow to the ASU Community (sent via email June 1)

So, here we are in 2020, painfully and acutely realizing that the long-held ideals of our nation, as embodied in the Constitution’s aspirations of the right to equal justice, the right to pursue happiness and the right to individual liberty, are, in fact, unfairly and inequitably distributed across our society. This, of course, has been a reality since the founding of our Republic and, although we have made progress through our struggles and our changes, it is nonetheless jolting to see these inequalities manifested through the unfair treatment of individuals based on their race and ethnicity by the very government designed to protect and defend their rights as citizens.”
