Join the Posner Center from 9-18 November 2022 as they convene global and local development leaders, practitioners, researchers, academics, and supporters looking to take concrete, anti-racist actions in their development work, diversify the global development field, and have a more equitable impact that begins to repair past injustices.
As people across all sectors seek to “decolonize” everything – from their minds to their diets to their work – there is growing concern that a familiar fate will befall the term, becoming a dreaded buzzword.
We will dig into decolonization with deeper and more authentic meanings and applications. Speakers will suggest specific tools to identify, acknowledge, and repair ongoing harm caused by colonialism in global impact work and shift thinking from people as objects of development to subjects and leaders of change.
The Symposium is core to the Posner Center’s impact. Supporting the Symposium supports leaders across the global development sector to do good better as we strive for a more equitable and liberated global society.
We want everyone who is interested to be able to participate! We use a sliding scale to make it accessible for those with lower incomes/wealth and to reflect the value and labor of this work Ticket sales will support us to pay a stipend to every single presenter, and we will split 15% of the net profits between all presenters and the Symposium Planning Committee.
