SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh a Keynote Panelist at National Race Amity Conference
SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh will be a keynote panelist at the National Race Amity Conference at Wheelock College in Massachusetts, November 14-15 . She will address the question, “What Is The Critical Role of Women in Advancing Access and Equity in the 21st Century?” with fellow panelists Nurys Camargo, Celeste Headlee and Jackie Jenkins Scott, and moderator Colette Phillips.
McIntosh will also be leading a breakout session on “Five Interactive Ways of Looking at Race and Class”:
This session examines five interactive frameworks, also known as interactive phases, I use when examining race and class in the United States. No one framework alone can explain all of what the American people see and experience and no framework alone gives much help toward constructive action. But together they can be useful. This session will challenge participants to examine the presented frameworks in the light of their own life experiences in hierarchies of race and class in the United States. The discussion will alternate between small groups and the large group as a whole, and will empower participants with tools for humane survival in unjust systems.
Last year, McIntosh was an inaugural recipient of the Race Amity Medal of Honor from the National Center for Race Amity.
Also speaking at the conference will be Layli Maparyan, executive director of the Wellesley Centers for Women, SEED's parent organization. She will be leading a breakout session on “Women and Spiritual Activism: Building Bridges from Culture to Humanity.”
