This pre-conference session answers Brooks’, Dwyer’s, & Rodriguez’ call for educational developers to “engage in critical reflection upon their own profession to avoid perpetuating racism, colonization, and oppression in the academy.” Facilitators—a cis-gendered African American woman DEI consultant and faculty developer, a cis-gendered Chicana sociologist of racism and center fellow, and a cis-gendered White center associate director—will guide participants through practices specifically developed for white educational developers to interrogate whiteness and racism in their centers. Collectively, we will think through short and long term strategies for redress and repair, and conditions and resources needed for success.
