Ok. We want to have a more diverse staff right? But how do we get there? What do we ask? And how do we avoid tokenization? Find out at the workshop.

I feel better equipped to "call-in" microaggressions, and able to discuss a recent microaggression in a productive way.

Interrupting Microaggressions

Saturday, April 2nd
9am-12noon PT
Register here

Microaggressions are everywhere. The classroom, the office, and on the street. They create small cracks in our psyche, that slowly break us down. Let’s do something about them!

Now that I am well aware what a microaggression is and the impact, I am committed to think carefully before I question or make a comment to one of my students or colleagues.

Racial Affinity Groups in Schools

Thursdays, May 5th & 19th
4pm-6pm PT
Register here

No, racial affinity groups are not racist. They are an essential strategy for transforming schools and organizations into equity-centered spaces. Join us for our next workshop on April 23rd, so that you can experience first hand what it looks, sounds and feels like to engage in racial affinity work.

For me it was to push through my own discomfort as I begin this work with my staff. I need to lead by example.

9am-1pm PT
Register here

We know we need to teach different, but what exactly and how? What does antiracist education look like in practice. Come find out at our next Antiracist Project Based Learning Workshop.

I felt like right off the bat I was in a space with like-minded educators so that was great and just diving right into the heart of it
