Guest Interview with speaker and author: Laurie B. Lippen

Author of Understanding Whiteness/Unraveling Racism, this book makes whiteness and white privilege visible, revealing the cultural and institutional structures that keep white dominance in place. The book is both a workbook and reader, providing tools for examining what it is to be white in the U.S., for addressing fear and guilt as barriers to dismantling racism, and for identifying the small daily acts and larger organized movements that further the struggle for social justice and equality. It includes analytical essays, narratives, and poems from a variety of diverse perspectives. Numerous experiential exercises also aid readers in deepening learning through one's own life experiences.

Dr. Lippen is a passionate presenter whose commitment to diversity inspires all who work with her. 

She is the principal of Lippin & Associates and also teaches at the University of California, Davis.

As a soulful accordionist with the HarmoniaSchvesters she plays her own ethnic Yiddish music.

A frequent WPC conference presenter where her keynotes and seminars are enthusiastically received, Laurie believes we need to work as individuals and in coalitions to bring needed societal changes and equity for all.
