In this conversation presented by the Center for Inclusive Communities, students will explore and discuss ways to actively create true equity and inclusion that benefits the whole of our country and world. Dr. Kathy Obear will explore with students the concepts of anti-racism, equity and inclusion and how to become people who embody these ideas and live them out personal, professional and academic settings and institutions.

A successful author of three books with over 30 years of experience specializing in conflict resolution, change management and creating inclusive environments, Obear is a leading expert in helping to establish socially just environments where everyone feels valued and respected.

As the founder of The Center for Transformation and Change, Obear has given speeches, facilitated training sessions, and consulted to top leaders at hundreds of universities, human services organizations and corporations across the United States and internationally with a goal to increase the passion, competence and commitment to create inclusive, socially just environments for all members of the organization.
