SIE Lab’s Innovation in Action: Speaker to discuss anti-racist education efforts

The School of Social Work’s Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab will host guest speaker Ronda Taylor Bullock, Ph.D., co-founder and executive director of “we are,” on Nov. 6, from noon – 2 p.m. in Room 118 of the Tate Turner Kuralt Building.

As a nonprofit, we are, which stands for “working to extend anti-racist education,” works to equip children, parents, and educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the complexity of racism.

Bullock, who earned her doctorate from the UNC School of Education’s Policy, Leadership and School Improvement Program, has research interests in critical race theory, whiteness studies, white children’s racial identity construction, and anti-racism. She taught English for nearly 10 years at Hillside High School in Durham, before pursuing her Ph.D.

Bullock’s visit is part of the SIE Lab’s new series of discussions on Innovation in Action: Approaching old problems in new ways. Attendance is free and includes lunch. $35 to earn two CEUs. RSVP to Christina Hill at
