Tufts University series of events separates ‘white’ professors from ‘BIPOC’ colleagues

Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts is hosting a series of dialogues with separate events for faculty and staff. one for those who are “BIPOC” individuals and another for “white participants”.

Tufts University’s Office of the Director of Diversity is sponsoring a “Dialogue Series” in the fall of 2022, which contains a “Radical Healing Dialogue Series” and a “Decompressed Whiteness Dialogue Series”.

An event description for the “Radical Healing Dialogue Series” says the eight sessions, which run from October 17 through December 12, “create an important and safe space for Tufts staff and faculty whose racial demographics are categorized as “BIPOC.”

“BIPOC” is an acronym used for Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

The description also states that the series is meant “to be a safe place for those who have traditionally been marginalized due to age-old forms of systemic and institutional oppression inherent in society.”

“At the heart of Radical Healing is the knowledge that everyone wants to feel included, accepted and belong at work, and that marginalized and oppressed people everywhere deserve to live free from discrimination, racism and oppression” Description States.

The Diversity Office is also hosting a series of dialogues called “Unpacking Whiteness” which is “organized for white participants holding privileged spaces.”

A description of the series says it “creates space” for participants to understand “how to practice anti-racism in their daily lives.”

“Anti-racism is an active and ongoing process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies, practices and attitudes in a way that redistributes power, policies and structures to be more equitable while drawing attention to the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous and people of color,” the description reads.
