LEAD: Let's Talk about Racial Code Switching

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.

Panelists

    Assistant professor in the Department of Psychology
    University of Michigan
  • Courtney McCluney
    Assistant professor of Organizational Behavior
    ILR School at Cornell University
