Evergreen State College announced this week that they will replace their controversial “Day of Absence” event with a workshop on “inclusion.”
Evergreen State College announced this weekend that they will be moving on from their controversial “Day of Absence” event as a result of the Weinstein debacle.
The “Day of Absence” program asked white members of the Evergreen community to leave campus for a day of activism related to inclusion and diversity.
Earlier this year, Evergreen State College President George Bridges asked Vice President Chassity Holliman-Douglas to develop a program to replace the “Day of Absence.”
“I have asked her to convene and chair a planning group comprised of students, faculty, and staff to shape its content and structure such that all members of our campus community are invited to engage in dialogue and discussion with one another and the speakers we invite to campus,” Bridges wrote.
