Norissa Williams

The College of Education and Human Sciences and the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln are hosting a virtual workshop for all faculty, staff and students aimed at exploring how race can be discussed in classrooms.

The interactive workshop, “Navigating Difficult DEI-Related Discussions in Class,” will be led by Norissa Williams, CEO and founder of Liberation Research and Practice Institute. Using a social justice lens and a relational approach, participants will consider how the classroom can be a site of templating new social realities.

The workshop will be held on Zoom from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 27. Registration is open to until 5 p.m. Feb. 23.

Willams partners with organizations to move their goals of antiracism from an aspiration to actualization. She is also the host of the podcast, Radical Remembering, where she and guests explore what it really means to be liberated. Most recently, Williams developed an app called Living Liberated to provide resources and tools for people interested in embodying liberation in every aspect of their lives.
