Building A Culture of Equity In Your Workspace:
Taking the particular circumstances of your organization into account, this workshop will help you consider areas of oppression and bias in your workplaces and give you tools to mitigate both by analyzing marginalization. Additionally, it will help you build strategies to ensure equity exists. By equity, we mean all people in the company have a seat at the table to guide the work you are doing and the culture you are creating.
Elevating the Dignity of Our Students:
Social justice and equity stem from honoring the dignity of our students. In this workshop, learn how to do that in a way that elevates belonging, and addresses the gap of belonging we have in our schools, rather than achievement. Teachers and building staff will analyze the way they both elevate and deny dignity for students and develop strategies to create equity in a way that is authentic and uplifting for all students.
Writing, Implementing, and Sustaining Justice Driven Curriculum:
This workshop is uniquely tailored to your school and the student demographic you are working with. Learn how to build curriculum that both teaches and activates learners to move forward in action. Honor both suffering and resistance, sorrow and joy that exists in the lives of people who are part of oppressed people groups. Using Bryan Stevenson’s model for creating social justice, we will write curriculum that helps us “get close, get uncomfortable, change the narrative, and give and receive hope.
