The Pain and Privilege of Being Professionally ‘Woke'

Back to all events

01/26/2021
This is a webinar event.
06:00 pm - 08:00 pm

In this session, panelists will describe the navigation within the ‘being woke’ minefield in terms of the professional negotiation between how being aware or being conscious can also be terrifying or isolating when placed as a ‘achieved benchmark’ on educating oneself to the injustices that occur across the world. This perceived state of mind, never fully allows you to be fully comfortable or complacent because once you are deemed ‘woke’, one can never unlearn the knowledge nor seem unwilling to share the knowledge.
