Reimagining Youth Work(ers) and the Ongoing Struggle for Racial Justice
Dr. Bianca Baldridge
Bianca J. Baldridge is an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Wisconsin,
Madison. As a sociologist of education, Bianca’s scholarship explores the socio-political context of community-based youth
work and afterschool education. Bianca’s research critically examines the confluence of race, class, and gender, and its impact
on educational reforms that shape community-based spaces that engage Black and Latinx youth in the US. She explores the
organizational and pedagogical practices employed by youth workers amid neoliberal education restructuring.
Sponsored by Youth-Nex, The School of Education and Human Development, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and the Equity Center.
