    With today’s political climate, many Writing Center administrators have wondered if and how they should address systemic racism (and other assaults on inclusivity efforts) in their centers and on their campuses. While there are many options, one good starting point is developing a statement on anti-racism/inclusivity. 

    Join us for the Antiracism/Inclusivity Statement Workshop where we will review sample statements, share strategies for tailoring your statement to your unique campus culture, and discuss how to strategically publish your statement. Take a step towards a more inclusive writing center with the support of your RMWCA colleagues. 

    This three-part webinar will focus on creating anti-racism and inclusion statements for our writing centers. The first workshop will be an information and drafting workshop and will be held February 17, 2021; the next webinar will be a  feedback workshop will be held June 23, 2021; and the final workshop we will hear from a WPA who had to deal with push back against such a statement at the University of Washington, Tacoma, Dr. Asao Inoue (now of Arizona State University)  on September 29, 2021.  Dr. Inoue will discuss how writing centers can effectively respond to pushback, along with the development of UWT Writing Center's ground-breaking anti-racism statement.

    All webinars will be held on Zoom with a link to be provided from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm Mountain Time.

    Here is a survey about anti-racism statements: https://forms.gle/jQQf4ySvqYoYPdGh7  that we will use in preparation of the webinar.

    In this new world of COVID-19, masks, social movements, and Zoom appointments, we ask ourselves as writing consultants/tutors, writing center administrators, theorists, and practitioners who are we? Who do we want to be? How do we help, and what does “help” even look like for us? We are at the edge of this brave new world, and as modern-day pioneers we must decide what we want our identities to be, what principles will guide us, and what we want our actions to be moving forward. So, TutorCon 2021, invites proposals for individual presentations, workshops, round table discussions, group games, and gallery submissions that address how you and/or your center are creating who you are, what you seek, and how you help.
