Description: Target Audience: Teachers, Classroom Support Staff, Administration
This session will examine the impact of racism, inequity, and exclusion on the learning environment. Participants will be trained to develop safe spaces to have courageous conversations using the restorative justice circle process. Circles have their roots in Native American, Aboriginal, African and other indigenous traditions. They prioritize equity, relationship building, sharing, and listening. Connecting in a circle allows for communicating, healing, and genuinely understanding experiences and dynamics around systemic racism and its connection to equity, inclusion, and diversity. Join us to explore culturally relevant pedagogy and discuss key concepts, including systemic racism, bias, prejudice, and more. All professional development sessions use a trauma-informed approach and teach skills and practices that you can implement immediately.
