Seeing the Racial Water: A conversation with Dr. Robin DiAngelo

Robin DiAngelo and Denise O'Neil Green addressing the audience

On April 11, 2019, Dr. Robin DiAngelo joined the Office of the Vice-President, Equity and Community Inclusion (OVPECI) for an interactive conversation on her work on ‘white fragility’ which has influenced the international dialogue on race.

Dr. DiAngelo’s work outlines the way race shapes the lives of white people, what makes racism so hard for white people to see and common white racial patterns that prevent us from moving towards greater racial equity. 

Weaving information, analysis, stories, images and familiar examples, Dr. DiAngelo provides the framework needed to develop white racial literacy. Although the focus is on white racial identity development, people of color may also find the analysis valuable as it is one that is rarely affirmed or provided in mainstream society.

In addition to her academic work, Dr. DiAngelo has been a consultant and trainer for over 20 years on issues of racial and social justice.
