This Inspirational Talks series invites speakers each semester from all over the country to discuss personal experiences relating to their identity, research and/or global issues that impact diversity and inclusion. PAWTalks provides an interactive, cultural sharing experience by highlighting the richness of the various cultures through speakers from around the country representing diverse backgrounds.

This PAWTalk features Janel Martinez, a multimedia journalist covering culture and identity. She is the founder of "Ain't I Latina?," an online destination centering Afro-Latinas. This program will explore Afro-Latinidad, Afro-Latinx erasure as well as anti-Blackness among Latinxs and its connection to mainstream media.

All undergrads, grads, staff, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to attend! For any questions, please email Carlos Turcios, Coordinator for Student Diversity and Inclusion at carlos6@umbc.edu or Campus Life’s Mosaic at mosaic@umbc.edu.
