Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts is hosting a dialogue series with separate events for faculty and staff. one for those who are "BIPOC" individuals and another for "white participants."
The Tufts University Office of the Chief Diversity Officer is sponsoring a "Dialogue Series" in Fall 2022, which contains a "Radical Healing Dialogue Series" and an "Unpacking Whiteness Dialogue Series."
An event description for the "Radical Healing Dialogue Series" states that the eight sessions, which run from Oct. 17 through Dec. 12, "creates an important, safe space for staff and faculty at Tufts whose racial demographics are categorized as "BIPOC."

"At the heart of Radical Healing is a knowing that everyone wants to feel included, accepted, and like they belong at work, and that marginalized and oppressed people all over the world deserve to live free of discrimination, racism, and oppression" the description states.
The diversity office is also hosting a dialogue series titled "Unpacking Whiteness" which is "Curated for White participants holding spaces of privilege."

A description for the series states that it "creates a space" for participants to understand "how to practice anti-racism in their daily lives."
"Anti-racism is an active and ongoing process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies, practices, and attitudes in a way that redistributes power, policy, and structures to be more equitable while drawing attention to the lived experiences of Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color," the description states.
