"Who is Your Schoolhouse Built For: Dimensions of Equity and Diversity in our Schools"
Presented by: Patrick Fennell, Founder/President, Empowerment Solutions, LLC
Conversations about creating equitable environments that appreciate diversity evoke varied responses, feelings and for some, a level of fear, confusion and/or anxiety. Equity and diversity are more than buzzwords…they are foundational to establishing, maintaining and building a positive culture and climate for all stakeholders within a school community. Meaningful conversations that lead to action require safe spaces for reflection and awareness. Successful school communities create environments that are conducive to all and empower everyone to contribute and thrive.
This interactive session will provide thought-provoking conversations around the relationship of equity to goals in education, connections between equity and diversity, the complex dimensions of diversity, and individuals’ roles and responsibilities for achieving equity and creating school cultures and climates that represent and welcome all students, staff, and families in the school community.
Please send any topics you would like to discuss and/or questions you have for other schools to Liz Warner at Liz@schoolcultureandclimate.org.
