This 4 part workshop series focuses on developing a sustainable pathway towards anti-racist, anti-bias, equity, inclusion, Cultural Intelligences (cultural competence, cultural relevance, cultural responsiveness), and Social-Emotional Learning environments.
Identifying Systems, Habits of Mind, and Cultural Norms
Utilizing a Problem-based learning and design thinking approach to developing a process for understanding problems as well as identifying pathways towards sustainable solutions
Bias: Why what we think matters just as much as what we do
In this workshop, we will be Identifying and understanding how bias works. Through highly interactive exercises participants will develop an understanding of implicit bias aligned with the 12 cognitive biases and engage in activities in order to work towards an increased awareness of and understanding of our own biases
Identity: How I view myself and how that affects my understanding of others
In this part of the workshop series, participants will work on developing an understanding of social hierarchies. Participants will also engage in activities to support the development and an understanding of the complexity of their own identities. Participants will then begin the process of analyzing their own identities within the context of social norms and social hierarchies. This is a critical step towards developing a cultural intelligence.
Cultural Intelligences: Developing an awareness of and understanding of cultural differences
In the final part of the workshop series, participants will learn what it means to be a culturally competent educator and thrive in culturally diverse learning environments. We will also examine strategies on how to ensure culturally relevant learning environments.
