Building Equitable and Inclusive Food Systems Faculty Panel
This exciting event will feature discussion about the tangible and conceptual outcomes of undoing inequality in the context of the UC Berkeley food system. Panelists will address issues of student, faculty and staff representation and participation, with the aim of redesigning the social, cultural and political institutions that determine food studies and food access on campus.
Given that disparities in wealth, opportunity and privilege affect everything from research agendas to rates of student hunger, exclusion and marginalization remain a reality at UC Berkeley. Panelists will thus consider the question: In what ways could equity across our campus food system precipitate strategic steps toward a more humane, democratic, and inclusive society? This discussion will both grapple with theory and suggest practical solutions.
The event is free and open to the public; registration recommended. Special access available for crowdfunding donors who make a gift by Oct. 20!
