New Book Club for Ombuds

Coordinated by Lisa Neale and Hector Escalante, in conjunction with Cal Caucus, this book club exists to connect the ombuds community to talk about privilege, inclusion, and justice. All are welcome to participate.

The group’s first meeting will be held via Zoom for one hour on Friday, 08 March at 2PM Eastern. The book to be discussed is White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism by Dr. Robin DiAngelo, a New York Times Bestseller. (Dr. DiAngelo is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at #IOA2019 in New Orleans in April.)

You can find more information on this flyer. Please help spread the word. We hope you’ll join the discussion on March 8th!

We've created a Slack channel to make this as easy as possible! On it, you'll find information to join the call next month (now 90 minutes) as well as DiAngelo's reading guide and other pertinent topics. Hope to see you all there! Here's the link:

Hoping this will be the first of many great discussions of provocative, important works. Many thanks to Lisa and Hector for leading the effort!
