DIVERSIFYING PHILOSOPHY

I was actively involved in Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) throughout grad school and served as a chapter head for MAP-Penn for three years. In my capacity as MAP organizer, I ran reading groups, organized four conferences, and lauched a visiting speaker series. I also created and ran a digital platform for the Penn philosophy community to share ideas on how to diversity syllabi and course content. In addition, I served as a website creator and organizational consultant for the 6th Latinx Philosophy Conference (Temple University) which, though not officially a MAP event, fell within the scope of MAP. At Dartmouth, I've co-organized an event focusing on Diné philosophies.

MENTORSHIP

I regularly mentor first-generation, low-income, and international students, both officially and unofficially. For example, I was a STAMP (Step-Ahead Mentorship Program) mentor for three semesters. 

DEPARTMENTAL SERVICE & WELLNESS

At Penn, I served as a graduate representative for the philosophy department and as a graduate student office hours coordinator. I also served as a graduate student Wellness representative for two years (and created the position). In my capacity as Wellness rep, I organized venting meetings (also known as"Whine and Cheese nights"), Art Museum trips, Park picnics and other events, and kept our department "Wellness Locker" stocked. I also organized the Penn Philosophy & Film series for two years. At Dartmouth, I have had the pleasure and privilege of hosting Susanna Schellenberg (Rutgers) and Kathleen Akins (SFU).

TEACHING: DISABILITY INCLUSION AND ACCESSIBILITY

Lately, I've been thinking more about disability inclusion and accessibility. In addition to the two MAP-Penn conferences focusing on the philosophy of disability, I also organized a teaching workshop on disability inclusion and accessibility in 2022.
