LEAD: Let’s Talk about Racial Code Switching
August 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
LEAD: Let's Talk about Racial Code Switching
Featuring Myles Durkee and Courtney McCluney
Virtual panel discussion
This LEAD conversation will address how college campuses can work to create a more inclusive environment where those from marginalized communities can be their authentic selves. Many faculty, staff, and students of color describe the need to “code switch” (or “act white”) in order to thrive, or even survive, at primarily white institutions. But this code switching comes at a cost. Featured speakers Myles Durkee and Courtney McCluney will discuss their experiences, research on the topic, and offer recommendations for best practices.
