“The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House”: Ten Critical Lessons for Black and Other Health Equity Researchers of Color

Speaker: Lisa Bowleg, PhD, MA

Building on the foundation of my article, “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House”: Ten Critical Lessons for Black and Other Health Equity Researchers of Color published in Health Education and Behavior in June 2021, this interactive webinar is designed to engage critical health equity scholars in a discussion about the risks, challenges, and strategies for success at their academic institutions in general, and at predominantly White institutions (PWI) in particular.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss additional critical lessons that should have made the list.

2. Engage with the question of whether it is possible to be transformative within PWI and other structures that were not designed for transformative change; in short, to paraphrase Stevie Wonder, “can you be in it, but not of it?”

3. Describe social-structural solutions to diversity, equity, and inclusion that PWI can adopt to meaningfully support faculty of color, particularly those who do critical health equity research.

4. Critically analyze at least three strategies and resources for social support, mentorship, self-care, and thriving despite the challenges. (Area 7.5.2)
