Taking a New Path Together
Building identity awareness and analyzing the everyday dynamics of oppression. Unlearning biases and harmful messages of dominance and inferiority. Nurturing allyship. Being strategic, mindful, and effective agents of change. Navigating identity-based conflicts. Facilitating difficult dialogues. Designing inclusive curriculum. Committing to structural change aimed at righting society's wrongs. Healing communities through accountability and action.
This is social justice at work in education.
EQUITY & INCLUSION ASSESSMENT
Does your organization need help identifying equity and inclusion strengths and areas for growth? My colleagues and I have experience bringing a social justice lens to assessment, developing strategic change initiatives, program implementation and evaluation.
Does your community need to learn more about social justice and inclusion? I can collaborate with you to develop workshops, intergroup dialogues, and trainings to meet your specific needs. See below for a few examples of past workshops I've done on my own and with colleagues.
DIALOGUE FACILITATOR TRAINING
I view cross-cultural co-facilitation as a transformative practice. And I love working with my colleagues to train other educators in the art of social justice dialogue and workshop facilitation. My workshops always engage various learning styles and incorporate creative expression and joy into session content.
Do you find yourself wondering what you can personally do to create change within your organization? Are you seeking guidance and encouragement as you hold yourself accountable in issues of equity and inclusion? I can provide personalized support and coaching.
