Got vulnerability?: Developing Colleagues of Color Through Mindful Supervision

In the face of “business as usual”, this presentation creates space for participants to interrogate the relationship of vulnerability and supervision in higher education, specifically supervision involving staff of color. Have you ever heard that supervisors aren’t meant to develop you, but instead are there to make sure you don’t burn anything down (often figurative)? The presenters, two Womxn of Color, who previously shared a supervisory relationship filled with vulnerability, will leverage theoretical frameworks (i.e. Adams et al., 2000) with contemplative exercises (i.e. gallery walk and case studies) during the presentation. In doing so the presentation will mine collective knowledge to help participants (1) articulate methods to develop identity-affirming supervisory relationships, (2) articulate racial battle fatigue and how it affects supervisees and/or supervisors of color, and (3) identify at least one vulnerable and tangible way to re-imagine supervisory relationships.
