Summer 2020 Community Book Read

**PLEASE NOTE: The registration deadline for the Summer Book Read has passed. However, we are still welcoming participation from anyone who wishes to take part in the book discussions, as long as they are able to obtain their own copy of the book.

If any extra copies of the book remain, we will offer them to late registrants on a first-come, first-served basis.**

Please register here for the Summer Community Book Read. 

Our book selection is The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias, by Dr. Dolly Chugh.

Dr. Chugh is an award-winning psychologist and faculty member at the Stern School of Business at New York University who studies how and why most of us, however well-intended, are still prone to racial and gender bias. The book provides a practical guide for how, as individuals, we can move past personal barriers to become active builders for the systematic work of diversity, equity, and inclusion, including racial injustice.

Book discussions are open to all staff, full-time and part-time faculty, undergraduate and graduate students (including incoming students), alumni and board members.

Invitations to virtual small-group book discussions and self-reflection activities will be sent by email to all who register.
This is an important University-wide initiative that will help us all be better prepared to engage and build a more aware and inclusive community.
