In 2020, AIWN introduced a series of guided conversations to help our members and guests learn how to take action to address racial inequality.
In February, we will be joined by Dr. Tracey S. Fisher, author of Little Big Change: Understanding, Interrupting, and Reducing Systemic Inequity to talk about the complicated topic of systemic and structural inequity.
How can individuals affect a larger system of racism and inequality?
Dr. Fisher will help event participants untangle challenging terminology and understand purpose-driven ideas, researched and defined concepts, and concrete strategies that can help motivate personal and professional action. Participants will be vigorously encouraged to take a positive, personal journey toward helping to end systemic and structural inequity.
We encourage you to read Dr. Fisher’s concise book prior to the conversation, so that we have basics covered and can jump right in to the deeper questions.
About Dr. Tracey S. Fisher
Thought-leader, intellectual, and social justice advocate, Dr. Tracey S. Fisher encourages audiences to engage in understanding the intersectionality of racism resistance, education, earned and unearned privilege, conscious and unconscious bias, as well as an awareness of the vast power that social constructs have on us all.
Dr. Fisher’s new book, Little Big Change: Understanding, Interrupting and Reducing Systemic Inequity challenges readers to proactively work at chipping away at systemic racism – one person and one step at a time.
Dr. Fisher takes a critical approach to exploring the ways in which people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds can consciously transform racial meanings and build transracial and ethnic solidarities within intersecting political, economic and socio-cultural environments.
The reader is vigorously encouraged to take a positive, personal journey toward helping to end systemic racism. The book contains purpose-driven ideas, defined concepts, and concrete strategies to help motivate action.
Dr. Tracey S. Fisher earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and three post-graduate degrees: Masters, Specialist, and PhD degrees, all from the University of Georgia. Dr. Fisher’s broadcast news, public and media relations management, and education expertise, span more than three decades. Dr. Fisher is married to Mr. Terence Fisher, an electrical engineer, and they have two adult children.
