Acting White in Living Color: Navigating Code Switching and Social Change in Higher Education

Code Switching is a way of life amongst people of color working in predominately white environments. For this presentation, code switching is the practice of changing one's language, dialect, or behavior to better fit one's environment. This presentation is ideal for white identifying professionals who supervise, advise, or work with students and colleagues of color. The presenters will provide attendees with resources, tools, and a practical model for implementing change in the workplace.
