  Pride Week Keynote Speaker & Panel on Creating Inclusive Learning Spaces  
(Diversity)

This is a two-part event from 7-9pm starting with Dr. Love's keynote on the experience of queer people of color in institutions like Tech followed by a faculty panel to discuss inclusive learning communities and organizations.

"Angelic Troublemakers": Black Queer Identity and Social Justice
7pm Keynote Speaker - Bettina Love from the University of Georgia will be discussing the intersectionality work necessary to be queer and fighting for social justice. Through a Black queer identity matrix (Howard, 2014), Dr. Love will discuss how, when exploring and analyzing the struggles and success of communities of color, queer identity can be expanded as a framework to speak truth to power in the quest for equity and justice.

"Inclusion and the Classroom"
8pm Faculty Panel - How can we encourage students to question perspectives outside their own? How can we create spaces within academic settings to discuss diversity and inclusion? Join Dr. Bettina Love and Virginia Tech faculty panelists Dr. Shelli Fowler, Dr. Marie Paretti, and Dr. Manuel Perez-Quinones in discussing how to deal with the challenges of incorporating social issues into a classroom dynamic. #InclusiveVT

This event is intended for all members of the University community including undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty, in addition to any and all folks from the surrounding NRV area! We look forward to seeing everyone there!
