Jayne Sommers is back! This time she shares her personal journey from understanding herself as a first-born Capricorn (achievement-oriented! controlling! always right!) to anti-racist educator, and how she came to see the ways she’s been socialized into our white supremacy culture. Informed by Tema Okun’s work and committed to changing higher education from the inside, Jayne offers to take white women on a own journey of uncomfortable self-understanding motivated by the need to give agency, more thought and attention, and greater respect to the women of color with whom we share relationships. Join us for a month-long challenge Jayne will lead: White Women’s Work. You’ll emerge with deeper awareness of how to teach, serve, and collaborate with the women of color on your campus, in your community, and in your life.
