Have you heard about George Mason University being a "majority minority" serving institution as our racial and ethnic diversity grows? Have you been asking questions about how to enhance practices of inclusion within your work space, classroom, and personal lives? While we recognize that social justice and inclusion work is constantly growing and evolving, we hope to provide a space where we can all continue to learn and grow together. Join us for a panel discussion digging deeply into foundation concepts around power, privilege, and oppression and the ways in which we can apply identity development theories, current research, and "best practices" around the country to focus on holistic inclusion at GMU, a historically white university. This panel will include examples of incidents and current issues at Mason and provide a space for attendees to discuss approaches, strategies, and concerns navigating difficult discussions, practices, and policies.

Moderator: Creston Lynch, Associate Dean of University Life
