December 15: Jasmin Ramon - Exploring the Intersections of Gender and Race  

Session Description: Together, we are going to explore the intersections of gender and race. Through an overview of language, history, and contemporary media examples, participants will better understand the foundation of the social constructs of race and gender, and the messages youth are receiving about the intersections of these identities.

About the Speaker: 

Jasmine is a proud Haitian-Puerto Rican raised in Newburgh, NY. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Alfred University, and a Master’s degree in Sociology from Northeastern University. Her research interests are identity development and representation of mixed/multiracial young adults.

Though early in her career, Jasmine has a passion for empowering student leaders to be identity-conscious and socially aware. When she's not building community, she enjoys traveling, soccer, scary movies, and family time.
