Zoom and In-person, SZB 2.624
12:00 pm (CST)

This semester the Texas Center for Equity Promotion (TexCEP) has launched a series of Centering Equity workshops focused on important and relevant topics around health and education.

The first workshop, Decoding Race & Ethnicity in Your Scholarship, is a series of three discussions centered around race and ethnicity in equity-based research.

Join us for this first discussion session:

Deciphering Race & Ethnicity

Key topics include:

  • What are current approaches to racial/ethnic group classification, and what are the historical roots of the classification system used by the federal government?
  • What are key concerns with current approaches to racial/ethnic classification from an education and health equity research perspective?
  • What are emerging promising practices to measure racial/ethnic identity in more nuanced ways, including more intersectional approaches to measuring identity?
  • How should researchers think about racial/ethnic identity and how does that sense of identity interact with the diverse identities of people within communities where research takes place?
  • What are some of the challenges in capturing racial/ethnic data when using various research designs?

Panelists include the College of Education Dean Charles R. Martinez Jr. and Associate Professors Gigi Awad and North Cooc.

A Zoom link will be sent to your email after you register.

IN PERSON: Masks are strongly encouraged at this event.

VIRTUAL: If you choose to attend via Zoom, it will require you to have access to either a phone or a computer with streaming ability and a strong wi-fi signal.

The workshops are open to all UT Austin students, faculty, staff and members of the community.
