The Dinner and Dialogue Series allows for informal conversations between Adelphi students and faculty, staff or administrators of color over dinner. The purpose of the dinner is to provide an opportunity for students to hear from faculty, staff, and administrators of color about their life experiences, careers, successes and challenges in an intimate setting.
All Adelphi students are welcome to attend the Dinner and Dialogue series but space is limited.
To register for this event please send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Statement by Dr. Laura Quiros: The common thread in my teaching, scholarship, and service, and in my role as an Associate Dean, is elevating complexity and furthering the social work mission of social justice. As such as demonstrated in my scholarship, I work to find spaces where I can produce both theoretical and empirical knowledge that raise awareness of the complexity of racial and ethnic identity and trauma-informed care from a social justice lens. I work to find spaces where I can advance social justice within Adelphi University, Adelphi School of Social Work and the New York City social services community. As evident in my work, I have been able to collaborate with colleagues to gently push the boundaries to overcoming the resistance to institutionalize multiculturalism and to find safe spaces to elevate and address issues of diversity. Throughout my tenure at Adelphi I have been instrumental in locating and presenting readings and facilitating dialogues that address the complexity of the human condition from many different perspectives and social locations. I encourage faculty, students and participants in my trainings to think more deeply about how we can create safe enough spaces for diverse voices and how our implicit bias can cause ruptures in the relationships we work so hard to build.
