Race and Social Equity: A Nervous Area of Government

The Askew School of Public Administration presents the annual Joe Cresse Ethics in Government Lecture.

This year's featured speaker is Susan Gooden, interim dean and professor of the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University.

This talk (and facilitated discussion earlier in the day; see this link) launches a pragmatic, solution-oriented discussion about race and social equity in government. Gooden's book of the same title contends that nervousness about race has resulted in an inability to seriously advance the reduction of racial inequities in government. Until this nervousness is effectively managed, she maintains, efforts designed to reduce racial inequities in the public sector cannot realize their full potential.

The lecture includes highlights from government agencies at the federal, state and local levels that are “ahead of the curve” in navigating this nervous area of government.

Free parking is available in the Civic Center lot directly across from the Law School.
