In this special Virtual Roundtable from Campus Rec Magazine, panelists were specifically looking to answer questions around how to initiate conversations about race and racism; defining and exhibiting “ally” on your campus; and practical steps to take to impact EDI via campus recreation.

The Panel

  • Maureen McGonagle, the director of the Campus Recreation, Centers LLC at DePaul University
  • Myrum Washington-White, the director of Athletics at St. Cyril of Alexandria School
