This workshop is designed for you to engage in strengthening the knowledge and skills needed to be a threat to the existence of inequity in our spheres of influence.
Using a framework designed to strengthen educators’ literacy related to equity, we will discuss critical principles that should drive equity initiatives and strategies. We'll use these principles to analyze the initiatives and strategies currently in our classrooms, schools and districts.
We will consider equity and inequity intersectionally in relation to race, class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, language, and other identities.
You will leave with:
1. A deep familiarity with an equity framework that is designed to be transformational, intersectional, and built on a sense of urgency for immediate and sustained change;
2. Strategies for engaging colleagues in deep conversations about how racism, economic injustice, heterosexism, and other forms of inequity operate in and out of schools; and
3. On-the-ground strategies for adjusting, not just individual practice, but also institutional culture with a commitment to equity.
