You’re invited to an ARISE Roundtable on June 20, 3pm. 

Topic:  Equity as Praxis

Equity has various definitions for different audiences. This roundtable will delve into multiple definitions of equity and social equity; then, we will explore how it looks in practice, whether on a research project or the workplace; our panelist will share their experiences in promoting equity. Finally, we will share lessons learned from the field. You can submit questions about social equity, which will guide our inquiry and discussion. Through this collaborative dialogue, we aim to improve our collective knowledge of equity as praxis.


Presenter(s): ARISE program coordinator Alej Martinez will lead this session with Gabriela (Gaby) FloresAssociate Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer at Metropolitan Community College; Cherayla Haynes, Community Partner Project Manager of the Frontiers Clinical & Translational Science Institute at the University of Kansas Medical Center; and Rumana Sharmin, Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Kansas.
Who should attend?
Researchers, students, and educators who want to share experiences, make connections, and gain skills in community engaged research (CEnR) are invited to attend. Please join us and share this invite with your colleagues.
Why Roundtables?
We offer virtual roundtables quarterly to give our team a place to share experiences, make connections, and gain skills in community engaged research (CEnR). These roundtables are sponsored by the ARISE project, a major investment in Kansas by the U.S. National Science Foundation Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR RII Track-1). The ARISE acronym stands for “Adaptive and Resilient Infrastructures driven by Social Equity.”
