There are so many rules that were not created by or for women; nevertheless, we often comply without asking questions. It is time we break the cycle, create guidelines, identify core values and end the silence about injustice. Funmi Oyekunle '12 will moderate a panel of UNH alumnae including Carol Tonge Mack '97G, '99G, Jacquesline Walker ’10, and Susan Yen '15 as they discuss the structural “-isms” that show up for Black women every day in the workplace and other settings. Cultural competency strategies to support Black women colleagues and gain a better understanding of diversity and inclusion in the workplace will be shared. We must End Polite Silence™ to begin the healing process before moving forward.
