Bearcat Diversity Book Club

Bearcat Diversity Book Club is where we choose one book a semester to stimulate discussions on varying subject matters related to cultural difference and inclusion. Bearcat faculty and staff learn to have brave conversations through open dialogue.  By doing this, we are building community, embracing difference, and becoming engaged, diverse leader on campus.

Additional information will be shared with participants.

Spring 2024 Bearcat Diversity Book Club

The Bearcat Diversity Book Club will be reading the book, "White Tears Brown Scars: How White Feminism Betrays Women of Colour" by Ruby Hamad.

What happens when racism and sexism collide? This explosive book of history and cultural criticism reveals how white feminism has been used as a weapon of white supremacy and patriarchy deployed against Black and Indigenous women, and women of color. 


Fall 2023 Bearcat Diversity Book Club

Fall 2023, we will be reading The Inclusive Mindset: How to Cultivate Diversity in Your Everyday Life by Justin Jones-Fosu.  This book intentionally defines what diversity is, while purposely articulating what it is not. It tackles some of the most controversial topics of DEI in a manner that allows for deeper conversation and reflection.  We will follow the relevant stories in each chapter, provide models for behavior, and helpful strategies to make inclusivity, advocacy, and allyship a part of our everyday life!

Bearcat Diversity Book Club will begin on October 9, 2023. Participants may sign up for the Monday or Tuesday Book Club that will be held bi-weekly over zoom at noon.
