May 13 – Equitable Pathways: Reflecting on the Many Different Ways to Get Where We Are Going


Presented by Máiri McKenna Edwards

Description: What does an equity lens add to our understanding of resilience? How do we balance the importance of developing our own skills, as well as the responsibilities of systems and institutions? In this conversation we’ll reflect on these tensions, as well as the roles of trauma, essentialism, community, culture, activism and how we care for ourselves. And we’ll talk about the role joy plays in all of this too!

Date: Wednesday, May 13th, 2020

Time: 2:00 - 3:00 PM
