Abstract/ Summary

“Suppose I start by stating that I am a straight white cis man from a working-class family. What does that even mean? How does it affect my actions, my values, and my decision to give this talk? Is this talk problematic? Do we need another white guy dispensing advice on race, gender, class, and more? I’m going to share some stories, some revelations, and some quotes that have helped me along. Most of these are stories of failures, don’t expect to be inspired. However, I do think I can offer at least my own perspective on working to wake up and working to support change. I’ll make sure there’s plenty of time for a Q&A, bring your questions and I’ll bring mine.” — Kevin Roberge
