The Staff Anti-Racism Awareness & Education (SARAE) group is welcoming all members of the Carleton staff community to participate in dialogue sparked by selected media that centers issues of racism. The dialogue events will take place in a series each term, and one can choose to attend all or a select number of the events.

SARAE’s Mission

The mission of the Staff Anti-Racism Awareness and Education (SARAE) Group is to provide intentional, ongoing opportunities for Carleton staff to engage in anti-racism dialogue in order to raise awareness of issues of racism on campus and beyond, expand staff knowledge of disparities within our communities, and equip Carleton staff with the resources necessary to identify, denounce, and reimagine the policies, practices, and personal habits that uphold racism in our society.

SARAE’s Vision

Our vision is to empower Carleton staff to engage in the ongoing work of creating an anti-racist community at Carleton. We will provide all Carleton staff several opportunities each year to expand their knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In pursuit of this vision, we seek to provide safe dialogue spaces to discuss pre-selected media that relates to that term’s theme and provide additional resources so that each person can continue their journey of understanding difference and the importance of an inclusive community.
