Social Justice Coffee Hour


Social Justice Coffee Hour provides a forum for dialogue about different social justice issues by presenting students and attendees with different viewpoints and voices on a certain issues. The idea is to increase awareness and knowledge of these issues in a safe and respectful space through empathic listening and insightful conversation, while also highlighting the intersectionality that lies between multiple social justice issues. Join us Thursday October 15th from 11 to 12 in the Alumni Center for a discussion on Women in the Workplace.

This discussion will take place two days after the Start Smart Workshop. Focussing on the issue of inequality faced by non-male identifying members of the workforce, this first installation in the Social Justice Coffe Hour series will be facilitated by: Amanda Baldwin (Development and Program Manager, Center for Women), Jen Jones (Facilities Coordinator for Sustainability, College of Charleston), and Tonya Mitchell (Executive Chef of the College of Charleston, Aramark). Free Counter Culture coffee and Charleston Tea Plantation tea will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own mug.
