OUE Equity Collective

Membership: Membership on this collective is on a self-selected and voluntary basis based on interest in and time available for collective work.

Purpose: The OUE Equity Collective seeks to combat racism as well as other forms of discrimination and cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion in OUE and Georgia Tech. This alternative to a committee is a non-hierarchical structure with rotating roles, and shared responsibility; collectives operate through a different relationship to power, and different understanding of power and equity, than do the top-down arrangements of typical committees. In a collective, "leadership" rotates through the group (as do the tasks that accompany it, such as facilitating meetings, undertaking administrative work, organizing resources and other project management work), and the groups' priorities and agenda are determined collectively.

Contacts: Nicole Leonard (UAT); Justin Boone (TAS); De Morris Walker (SSSI); Linda Green (TAS); Ruth Yow (SLS); Stephanie Reikes (TAS); Lauren Evans (HP); Christina Wan (SSSI); Lacy Hodges (UAT); Kenji Terawaki (OVPUE); Susan Belmonte (PGPP); Steven Girardot (OVPUE).
