This special edition of Titan Talks: Webinar Series is presented by the Office of Alumni Engagement in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Presenters will share their perspectives on ways to advocate for others and be an Ally.


Allyship begins with true recognition and understanding of privilege and systemic racism. Solidarity comes when allies are committed to action and to actively denouncing and dismantling racist policies. In this conversation, panelists will discuss what it means to “spend one’s privilege” to support those who are oppressed by current power structures and ideologies. Panelists will share their perspectives on how best to be an Ally to the Black community and support other allies through their own journey. The conversation will center on education and what white allies can do to make lasting change.
