Emotional Labor Within a Hostile Climate: Increasing Capacity of men of Color

PC 10

Emotional labor is the double-burden of supporting the emotional well-being of students of color while surviving one's own oppressive environments. Amidst ever-hostile campus climates for communities of color, it is imperative to recognize emotional labor as valid work while honoring this work often falls on women and femme-identified people. Through dialogue, personal reflection, and critical analysis, we invite men of color to examine the ways they can better engage in emotional labor alongside women and femme-identified colleagues of color.
