Race and Bias Conversations

Race and Bias Conversations

Addressing systemic racism in our country, communities, and institutions is complicated and difficult. It is something that Duke, like many other institutions of higher learning, has often struggled with. To contribute to the university's ongoing efforts to grapple with these issues, The Graduate School holds a series of conversations on race and bias throughout the academic year. These discussions and talks are aimed at helping the Graduate School community better understand the many facets of systemic racism and bias, and keeping these issues at the forefront of our consciousness as we work together to make Duke a more inclusive and supportive environment. These conversations also highlight the important work that members of our community are doing on issues of race and bias, be it research, advocacy, support, or policy-making.
