The 20X Challenge is a student-run initiative started by a group of sophomores this summer to address racial injustice within the Dartmouth Greek community. You can learn more about the challenge here.

The 20X Challenge partnered with the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences to co-sponsor a speaker event to bring two speakers, Angela Winfield, J.D. and Tiffany Harper '05, J.D, to the Dartmouth community via Zoom to share their expertise as part of the educational mission of the challenge. The event was moderated by Cait Deerin '22 and Margaret Hubble '21.

Tiffany Harper '05, J.D., the First Deputy Treasurer and Chief of Staff for the City of Chicago, spoke about implicit bias and how to take action to recognize and address it. She defined implicit bias and how it impacts our beliefs, assumptions, and actions. Participants were asked to identify their own biases, learn how to challenge them, and incorporate what they have learned to help take action to dismantle systemic inequity.

Angela Winfield, J.D, Associate Vice President for Inclusion and Workforce Diversity at Cornell University, presented the topic, “Because People Aren’t 1-Dimensional: What It Means to Bring All of Our Identities to the Table.” She spoke about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and how people can hold multiple marginalized identities at a single time. In this interactive conversation, she delved into intersectionality, what it is and how we embrace it as individuals and as allies. She gave practical advice to build inclusivity into participant’s everyday life and work.
