Professionalism as a Racial Construct featuring Leah Goodridge

November 2, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Center on Racial and Economic Justice (CREJ) presents:

Professionalism as a Racial Construct

While professionalism seemingly has race neutral application, Leah Goodridge argues the norms are often used to regulate people of color in the workplace, as the standards themselves are grounded in racial subordination.  Her analysis of professionalism as a racial construct examines three main aspects of the legal profession: (1) threshold to withstand bias and discrimination, (2) selective offense, and (3) the reasonable person standard.  This presentation will also address methods to disrupt professionalism as a racial construct. Goodridge is a New York City Planning Commissioner and the Supervising Attorney of the Housing Project at Mobilization for Justice (formerly known as MFY Legal Services), where she represents tenants in New York City Housing Court, New York State Supreme Court, the Appellate Division of New York State, the New York State Court of Appeals and federal courts.
