Self-Care is an Act of Resistance

Dr. Elizabeth Joy

Now more than ever, we know the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Thankfully, individuals like you have stepped up to help make a difference. While your efforts are valued and are critical to achieving a better world, will the world be better if you aren’t?

This session will explore the difficulties of being a passionate social justice advocate while maintaining well-being. You will gain insight regarding how and why we should avoid martyrdom and live a lifestyle of embodied self-care.


Dr. Elizabeth Joy is a human behavior and business expert who lends her leadership in various initiatives and organizations beyond her own to improve individual, organizational, and societal outcomes. She provides consultive and advisory guidance to numerous entities and high-profile individuals to enhance performance by providing solutions designed to account for individual needs while solving organizational and societal problems.

Elizabeth designed and launched The Joy Society Community for professionals, leaders, and business owners who aspire to her coaching clients' success levels. The coaching, workshops, and self-paced learning modules offered in this virtual community disrupt professional development by acknowledging and addressing the intersection of work and life. Dr. Joy's work centers on reimagining and redefining success as a lifestyle of holistic well-being that facilitates self-actualization.

“When we identify where our privilege intersects with somebody else's oppression, we'll find our opportunities to make real change.”― Ijeoma Oluo
Overcoming Complacency and Ceding Space
This panel of K-16 educators and administrators will discuss how to leverage one's privilege (and power) to do the important work of transforming computing courses, departments, and cultures. Topics will include not only how to counteract complacency to be better advocates and co-conspirators but also challenges faced and the importance of ceding space to enact meaningful and sustainable change.

3C Fellows Lightning Talks: Experiences and Outcomes
“Too often we think the work of fighting oppression is just intellectual. The real work is personal, emotional, spiritual, and communal.” - Bettina Love
3C (Cultural Competence in Computing) Fellows will give 10-minute talks on their experience implementing an identity-inclusive deliverable (course, module, or other activity) at their institution. Lightning talks will cover deliverable overviews and results as well as personal reflections during the process.

Identity- Inclusive Courses: A Student Perspective
“The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy” -bell hooks

With representation across multiple institutions, panelists will reflect on personal experiences, classroom dynamics, and key learnings derived from their time in the course.
