Recognition and Reckoning: Empowering Men of Color through Equity and Cultural Wealth

Re-envisioning our institutions as spaces designed to empower men of color will require a radical and honest reevaluation of who we are and what we do. This year’s Institute will center on the cultural wealth of men of color and apply an equity-minded lens to our own institutions. The three-day experience will feature nationally renowned scholars, artists, and activists, including Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. June 1 and 2 will be held virtually and provide breakout sessions, workshops, and critical reflection and networking opportunities. June 3 will offer in-person and virtual opportunities to strategize and implement key takeaways from the Institute.
