Womanist Leadership: gender equity summit keynote

Monday, March 1, 2021 | 6pm

Womanist leadership is discussed as an oppositional model to the asymmetrical leadership structure advanced by white men. Black women, who stand at the intersection of race and gender often face additional oppression due to their class, sexuality or physical ability. In response, they have developed and practiced models of leadership tied to their identities and collective in focus. This talk presents the tenets of womanist leadership, drawing from historic and contemporary examples and analysis.
Speaker: Dr. Melina Abdullah, Professor and former Chair of Pan-African Studies, California State University, Los Angeles
