21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge

At the start of the spring 2022 semester and during the following twenty-one (21) days, as a community, Delaware Law School participated in the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge.

  • For reference, the Racial Equity Challenge content is posted under this section in the Resources link
  • Thanks to all students, faculty and staff who participated in the challenge and encouraged others to do so!

In culmination of the challenge, there will be a video viewing with facilitated breakout discussions scheduled for Thursday, February 10, 2022.  See attached flyer.

  • Walk the Walk was prepared for the American Bar Association.   It is an approx. 30-minute video in which actors portray a diverse group of lawyers working at the same law firm.   Many of the lawyers appear to be well-intended, but consciously or unconsciously they say and do a lot of things that show a lack of sensitivity to their colleagues or reduce people to a stereotype.   It is an engaging video that attendees will be eager to discuss immediately after watching it.  That’s the “Talk the Talk” part of the program.  Students, faculty and staff are invited to sign-up to watch the video and participate in small groups of about 10 to 15 people to discuss it for 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Sign up link is included in the flyer (pdf) (and here)!
