DECO and ASUSF Present at Georgetown

In late February, Vice Provost Mary Wardell, DECO Program Manager Ria DasGupta, and ASUSF President Shaya Kara were invited by Georgetown University’s Center for Social Justice to lead a workshop for students, staff, and faculty on the topic of Transformative Allyship. A concept rooted in Jesuit values, transformative allyship aims to work past fear to discuss the unique roadblocks and challenges to create a campus climate that is cognizant of history, positionality, and social identity so that we may offer new possibilities for disrupting entrenched systems of power.
