Washington University in St. Louis: ‘Professionalism’ is racist
An event at Washington University in St. Louis is asking students one question: “Is Professionalism a Racist Construct?”
The event is being held virtually through the university on Feb. 1, but states that the term professionalism, at times, “has at times been used to silence and marginalize people of color.”
“The term ‘professionalism’ has at times been used to silence and marginalize people of color, when attributes of appearance, language or interactions that have nothing to do with job knowledge or constructive collegial relationships are labeled as ‘unprofessional,'” the event description states.
In this context, the event description states, professionalism upholds white supremacy.
“In this context, so-called professionalism is coded language, a construct that upholds institutional racist policies and excluding practices,” the description states.
According to the description, the event will focus on “dismantling white supremacy and privilege in varied contexts while upholding social justice and advancing effective workplaces in which all contributors can bring their full selves to the job site.”
In September, Washington University in St. Louis received national attention after a student senator placed American flags from a 9/11 display on campus into trash bags.
