A group of Black counseling psychologists and colleagues across the nation, including one from the University of Maryland, has organized three weeks of personal and professional development for academics to learn about racism and practice accountability and collective action.
From Aug. 1-21, Academics for Black Survival and Wellness is offering virtual training on topics such as the history and systems of anti-Black racism, exploring whiteness in the academy, and how to practice Black allyship. The group, which includes Carlton E. Green, director of diversity training and education in the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, aims to foster accountability and growth for non-Black people and enhance healing and wellness for Black people.
