Distinguished Speaker Series Dr. Carl E. James

 Distinguished Speaker Series #3: Dr. Carl E. James on April 1, 10 am

Hortative Equity? Beyond taskforce reports, unconscious bias training, and targeted hirings?
Featuring Guest Speaker Dr. Carl E. James

Speaker bio: Carl E. James holds the Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community & Diaspora in the Faculty of Education; and is also the Senior Advisor on Equity & Representation in the Office of the VP of Equity, People and Culture at York University. His research interests include examination of the ways in which accessible and equitable opportunities in education and employment account for the lived experiences of marginalized and racialized Canadians; the possibilities and limits to institutional policies and practices in addressing racism and discrimination; and the ways in which societal and institutional cultures shape their lived experiences, educational trajectories, and social outcomes. His most recent publications include “Colour Matters”: Essays on the Experiences, Education and Pursuits of Black Youth (2021).  

Event Description: As part of their action to accompany the talk of “systemic racism” affecting the education and employment issues of their members, institutions have had taskforces conducting self-examinations of inequities, racism, and discrimination; anti-racism/unconscious bias/anti-oppressive training; and targeted or cluster hiring of Indigenous and Black scholars. Are these “equity measures” really bringing about “equity, diversity and inclusion”? Are institutions’ claims, programs, initiatives, and activities really making a difference? What can we expect in terms of cultural changes?
