Dr. Ame Lambert, Vice President for Global Diversity and Inclusion for Portland State University, shares how the responsibility of equity and inclusion work belongs to everyone. At Portland State, she is developing a 12 to 18 month plan to build the thread of racial equity throughout students, faculty, and staff.

You will also hear about the ways to engage children in difficult conversations about race. Whether talking with children or co-workers, she urges you to lean into the conversations and work. One of the ways to do this is by ‘expanding your capacity for discomfort.’

And for your playlist… Dr. Lambert suggests adding ‘Glory’ by John Legend and Common. And for your reading list… books by Beverly Jenkins.

Host: Kent Wyatt, Communications Manager
