Wellness for BIPOC Faculty Members: Ways to Thrive in PWI’s Friday, May 20, 1pmEST
This presentation will explore the phenomenon of racial battle fatigue (RBF), which is defined by Smith, Allen, and Danley (2007) as "the anxiety experienced by racially underrepresented groups as well as those engaged in race work with a focus on the physical and psychological toll taken due to constant and unceasing discrimination, microaggressions, and stereotype threat." The purpose is to not only define RBF, rather to provide practical measures to help BIPOC faculty to manage their stress reaction and to find ways that move from coping to thriving in higher education.
