UW’s Minero to host webinar about, ‘Working Together to Achieve Racial Equality’

November 28, 2015

UW-Madison’s Laura P. Minero will be leading an upcoming webinar titled, “Working Together to Achieve Racial Equality.”

Minero is a Ph.D. student with the School of Education’s Department of Counseling Psychology.

Laura P. Minero
UW-Madison's Laura P. Minero
will lead a webinar on Dec. 11.
The webinar, scheduled for 10 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 11, is being offered by Forward Community Investments (FCI), an investor, connector and advisor for organizations and initiatives that reduce social, racial and economic disparities across Wisconsin.

The webinar will explore questions such as:

• How can we find commonality with one another in our fight towards achieving racial equity?

• What is story-telling and what role can it play in increasing our understanding about ourselves, others and racial equity?

• How can we integrate story-telling and meaning-making into our work?

A preview of the event notes that Minero is originally from Mexico and was “raised in a small, rural town in the farming capitol of California, and is passionate about working with marginalized communities who may experience discrimination and oppression resulting in high levels of minority stress. Laura's research interests include examining how policy impacts the lived experiences of immigrant and LGBTQ+ communities in hopes of being able to identify how to better-serve these populations through more inclusive implementation of policy and distribution of services.”

The preview continues: “As a future counseling psychologist, Laura not only aspires to become a tenured psychology professor, but also seeks to own a non-profit organization for both the Latino immigrant and LGBTQ+ community in hopes of providing mental health services to those who may not otherwise be able to access these services. “

This presentation is part of FCI's monthly series of webinars focused on racial equity. To register for this webinar, visit this web page.
