My Racial Journey: Lessons from a Year of Promoting Racial Literacy

Presenters: Shannon Wanless, Julia Brazier, Aisha White, Adam Flango

At the 2020 Diversity Forum, the Pitt Office of Child Development launched My Racial Journey, a self-guided curriculum aimed at developing racial literacy for adults who work with and learn about children across disciplines. Over the past year, the facilitators have seen the program implemented in classrooms, workshops, and trainings around the world, from schools in Germany to nonprofits in Texas to virtual learning spaces. Through a roundtable discussion, this workshop will reflect on how facilitators have found success with My Racial Journey, highlighting experiences working with it from both professional and personal standpoints. It will also discuss the importance of having a tool like My Racial Journey to further social justice and equity work, and provide an open space for participants to ask questions. The goal will ultimately be to show how participants can incorporate racial literacy into their work successfully, regardless of their field, and use it as a tool to build just communities. Learning Goals include: professional development, social justice, resource sharing, and personal growth.
