Critically Conscious Antiracist Leadership: Tools for Authentically Transforming Campus Communities

PC 30

In this session, the presenters will aim to transform the theoretical components of antiracism into practical steps for critically conscious antiracist leaders. Grounded in Paulo Freire’s theory of critical consciousness, critically conscious antiracism is defined as "the ability to recognize and analyze racist policies and the commitment to take action that dismantles this form of oppression." The presenters will provide the tools of critically conscious antiracist leadership by exploring the roles of critical reflection, institutional efficacy, and transformative action.
