Ethical Orientations for Collegiality, Mentoring, and Teaching
Abstract: When Americans aren't ignoring inequities altogether, we focus on cultivating empathy for other people's hardships. Unfortunately, this approach only reinforces the status quo. In contrast, this workshop helps attendees see that changing our environments requires a laser focus on unearned advantages. Too often, people in dominant identity categories assume they are good and decent without reference to actual standards. However, operating ethically as a colleague, mentor, or teacher requires holding oneself to objective standards, not simply assuming you're good at your job because no one has compelled you to do it better.
