DESCRIPTION

You want your school to be an equitable place of learning. A place where every child gets what they need every day. And yet... 

  • You're worried that isn't currently the case. There are disparities in outcomes, but what those are and what is driving them isn't quite clear to you. 
  • You feel called to take a stand in the face of injustice but unsure of what exactly to do. 
  • Your mind is spinning with terms and acronyms and confusion about what's the "right" thing to say and what you "shouldn't" say.


If you are in the early stages of understanding educational inequities and are eager to learn, this course is for you. 

When we begin to see inequities in schools and organizations, we can feel overwhelmed by their magnitude. This can make us feel like we don't know where to start, or how to start, with addressing them. At the same time, we may feel a surge of emotions, including anger, sadness, guilt, responsibility, and anxiety, and these emotions can also be paralyzing. 

We have all been beginners. Beginners need and deserve a space to be together and learn. We know you want to take action and create schools where every child thrives, and we want to set you on the path to doing so. This is an ideal course for anyone new to coaching or holding an equity lens.  


OUTCOMES

Participants will:

  • Build foundational equity literacy to increase our learning, reinforce what we know, and consider for our organizations
  • Identify and generate actions related to common inequities in organizations 
  • Learn and practice conversations centered on equity using the tools and practices of Transformational Coaching 
  • Boost our courage for working with triggers and having conversations centered on equity

ACTIVITIES INCLUDE

  • Small group discussions
  • Mini-practice experiences
  • Direct instruction
  • Demonstrations

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Teachers, coaches, and school leaders who crave a non-judgmental learning space to acquire a foundational understanding of racism, white supremacy, and educational equity
  • Coaches who have started seeing educational inequities but are not sure where to begin to interrupt them
  • People who are at earlier stages of their learning about inequity and racism


This course is also for you if:

  • You know that schools and organizations are inequitable places, but you can't precisely put your finger on why
  • You want to have conversations with others where you can ask all the questions that you are embarrassed to ask
  • You have started seeing educational equities but are not sure where to begin to interrupt them
  • You want to learn a few things you can say when you hear someone saying something problematic, things that will help that person reflect on what they are saying.    
  • You want a space to clarify your thoughts and feelings about equity, to anchor in your purpose and vision for yourself as an human being, and to boost your courage.
