EJI hosts annual events, guest lectures, and training workshops to facilitate conversations about race and promote scholars who embrace social justice.
The Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture Series has featured doctors, anthropologists, and journalists who have reflected on topics like poverty, racism, and same sex marriage. The lecture is named in honor of Elaine Pinderhughes, a professor emerita of the School of Social Work whose seminal research revealed that race, ethnicity, and power strongly influence how social workers interact with clients.
EJI training workshops help students, faculty, and staff deepen their awareness of the issues, extend their knowledge, and build new skills that they can apply to their work. These training experiences are designed to help the community engage in discussions related to equity, justice, and inclusion.
