About the event

Join us from 11 a.m. to noon MST on August 20, 2020, for our LIVE Educational Equity webinar: “Code switching: The practice of interacting in different ways depending on the social context, not limited to race.”

People from all different backgrounds have learned the subtle skill of code switching. In this webinar, we will break down this skill, why and how people do it, and how we move towards creating environments where code switching is a choice not a necessity because people feel comfortable showing up authentically. #EduEquity #TogetherWeSoar

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Code switching is happening all around you, even if you can’t see it.
  • Code switching by choice versus for survival.
  • The importance of feeling safe enough to drop the code-switching when you want to.

This dialogue is open to students, alumni and the general public.
