Social Work Diversity Lecture on Advancing Racial Justice featuring Dr. John H. Jackson, EdD, JD

March 31, 2016 | 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


The Wayne State School of Social Work is proud to host Dr. John H. Jackson, Ed.D., J.D., President and CEO of The Schott Foundation for Public Education as the keynote speaker for our 10th Annual Diversity Lecture on Thursday, March 31, 2016 from 1 to 3 pm in the Wayne State University Community Arts Auditorium. Dr. Jackson will be presenting "Advancing racial justice in our communities: Organizing together for racial justice." The central theme of the keynote lecture and panel discussion will include current issues on racism, particularly in the wake of increased violence, police use of force, and unrest on college campuses. 


The free lecture is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends of the University and the public. We strongly encourage faculty to bring their classes to the lecture, and if anyone would like us to track their student attendance, they simply need to provide their class roster to Lauree Emery at and we will provide a list of attendees to the faculty member after the lecture. There is no pre-registration necessary for this lecture, however we are offering 2 CEs at a cost of $10 at the lecture for those interested. CEs can be purchased at the door on the day of the lecture. Please contact Lauree Emery at with questions.


Dr. Jackson has significant experience in formulating educational policy, developing public policy leadership, engaging the public, and identifying resources. Before heading the Schott Foundation, Dr. Jackson served as chief policy officer and director of education for the NAACP. In 1999 President Bill Clinton appointed Jackson to serve as senior policy adviser in the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education. Jackson also served on the Obama–Biden transition team as a member of the president’s 13-member Education Policy Transition Work Group.
