The Ames Pridefest 2020 Storytelling Project Presents: New Beginnings with Rita Mookerjee, Saturday, August 29 at 6pm via zoom!

Join Rita as she shares her story of navigating academia as a loud-mouthed, pissed-off, queer woman of color. She’ll share anecdotes and lessons learned as she chronicles her whirlwind first year as a professor. Topics will include education in the time of Trump, the evils of white feminism, the myth of “professionalism,” being the token minority, and what to do when life turns your plans upside down. Bring your burning questions and your friends.

The Ames Pridefest 2020 Storytelling Project is presented in partnership with the Ames Public Library and is sponsored by The Project of Primary Health Care, with one-on-one storytelling support from the ISU Writing & Media Center.

[FREE EVENT] Sonya Renee Taylor: Why Leaders Must Practice Radical Self Love

Repost from Barrett-Koehler Publishers:

The key to transformation is radical self-love. Sign up to hear more from Sonya Renee Taylor, the bestselling author of The Body is Not An Apology → https://leadershipforachangingworld.com/facebook/

Master these radical leadership principles:

> Why leaders must practice radical self-love

> The difference between emotional intelligence and radical self-love

> How to build organizations rooted in radical self-love

> How to build a world guided by love

Sonya Renee Taylor says... “We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all humanity and nature."

We have to seize this opportunity to challenge the systems that rank bodies from “better,” to “worse.” Systems based in this kind of thinking have caused so many deaths and such terrible tragedies.

We don’t need to feel powerless in the face of all this tragedy. The change starts with us. Understand once and forever: when you love yourself radically, you can build a more caring organization and a more compassionate world.

From @diversifyournarrative

Different types of racism work collectively to oppress BIPOC people and harm their communities. It’s time we:

✅Recognize the differences between internalized, interpersonal, structural, and institutional racism.
✅Dismantle Oppressive systems and practices for *all* people
✅Call out racist, everyday actions
✅Denounce the white supremacy that exists in the U.S.
✅Create Equity for BIPOC and marginalized communities

We must #DiversifyOurNarrative

How do we do that?

Interrupt racism every single time.
08/17/2020

Interrupt racism every single time.

It doesn’t matter if the racist comment or action you hear or see is intentional or unintentional, we all need to interrupt it every single time. A simple statement like “That’s not okay” is a great start (see our “RACISM INTERRUPTERS” post pinned to the top of this page). Without interruption, racism festers, intensifies and multiplies among the people practicing it and who hear and see it, which creates more harm and danger for the people who experience it. Will you interrupt it every single time? Leave an emoji if you will 🙋🏿‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ #ShowUp

Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity

The Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE) is a comprehensive forum on issues of race and ethnicity at Iowa State University and beyond. The local conference* is designed to model the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education (NCORE).

NCORE is the leading and most comprehensive national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in higher education, bringing together leading experts in the field. The conference assists institutions of higher education in creating inclusive environments, improving campus racial and ethnic relations, and expanding opportunities for access to education for traditionally underrepresented populations.

The NCORE-ISCORE Project consists of a delegation of Iowa State University students, faculty, and staff who attend the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education annually. Conference participants will disseminate information gathered from NCORE at ISCORE, the Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity.

The Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity(ISCORE) seeks to bring the more salient ideas and concepts of the national conference to Iowa State University, add local perspectives, and


  • Develop and enhance ISU student, faculty, and staff awareness of racial and ethnic issues in higher education around the country.

  • Continue to promote addressing multiculturalism in the classroom and in American higher education.

  • Make information, regarding issues of race and ethnicity, accessible to the entire university community and support the university’s ongoing efforts.
  • *ISCORE participation is restricted to Iowa State University community members and guests. Please contact [email protected] for more information about ISCORE and the NCORE-ISCORE Project.
