Presenter: Callie Watkins Liu, PhD, Director of JEDI Education and Programs

In this session, Dr. Callie Watkins Liu, will expand upon the idea of "JEDI work as love work" and trace different ways that this can exist at the core of anti-oppression work. Dr. Watkins Liu sees empathy as an important dimension of "love work" and will share how this lens informs her own practice. Through personal experience, frameworks and examples, this session will develop a through line from the concept of "love" to anti-oppressive practice. This session is an opportunity to reflect on core motivations around JEDI and how that can manifest in your own life and work.
