Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Are you interested in how to integrate honest youth collaborative discussions of identity that addresses the personal and difficult topics of race, gender, sexuality, privilege, and bias into your classroom? In this workshop, participants will engage in discussions and activities that compel them to question their privilege and bias and examine the barriers of talking about issues of identity. One goal is for each person to leave with ideas, questions, or strategies that expand their empathy in their personal lives, curriculums, and/ or communities. The overarching outcome is that through this reflection and conversation, educators and our youth will question our educational system and how our cultural awareness inspires ideas that influence structural changes. We believe that systems change once people change, so to tackle systemic oppression, we must start by deconstructing apathy and ignorance, and safe, honest conversation and reflection are powerful places to start (grades K-12).
