The Staff Diversity Development Initiative
The Staff Diversity Development Initiative invites everyone to a viewing and discussion of Shakti Butler’s new film, “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity.” In the U.S., race – more than any other demographic factor – determines levels of individual educational attainment, health and life expectancy, possibility of incarceration, and wealth. This film reveals a self-perpetuating systems of inequity in which internal factors play out in external structures: institutions, policy and law. Cracking the Codes works to disentangle internal beliefs within, as it builds skills to recognize an address the external drivers of inequity through dialogue, reflection and learning with and from leading experts in social justice.
This event is open to all university community members. Bring your lunch, watch the film and participate in the post-film discussion. Participants in the Staff Diversity Development Initiative (SDDI) may earn 10 points for attending this event.
