NEW ERG – Employees with Children ERG
Wednesday, July 28th, 2:00-3:00 pm, Lakeside 213
The Employees with Children ERG is intended to be a community of employees at Elon who have at least one child. Let’s cut to the chase – parenting can be wonderful, but it is hard. Whether you’ve just become a parent, have a child that is an adult, or are anywhere in between, let’s join together to support and encourage each other through this journey.
Please join us even if you missed our first meeting. Please register for the event below. Once the location has been confirmed, you will be notified.
Summer Race Reflections & Discussion Series: Activism Fatigue, Isn’t Oppression Over? co-sponsored by CREDE, Office of Inclusive Excellence Education and Development and OLPD
Thursday, July 29th, 12:00-2:00pm, Zoom
“When allies are overwhelmed by sadness, guilt, physical and emotional exhaustion, they may succumb to a desire to pivot away from the experiences of the oppressed. The described exhaustion is allyship fatigue.” – Dr. Michelle Neely
Join us for a panel of community activists who will talk about how marginalized communities are often left in more taxing conditions after the fleeting involvement of majority identity holders due to their “allyship fatigue”. What does it mean to “do the work” in a way that does not cause harm to vulnerable communities? How can those who want to be allies use their privilege, positions, and networks to leverage their power for liberation?
Space is limited for the Summer Race Reflections and Discussion Series. If you are unable to register, it means we are at capacity. Please email email@example.com to request to be on the waitlist.
