This 2-part Session is designed to provide a DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) understanding and approach to active Restorative Practices for Day-Day Operations. We will use elements and theory of Restorative Practice and circles to look at how we conduct meetings, address conflict and challenging conversation, and prevent harm. Overall have a greater understanding and inclusive and equitable engagement with colleagues and youth. Participants will leave with tools, resources, and techniques to put into action so that everyone feels they are seen, valued, heard, and belong.

Understanding Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, and Pedagogy by understanding elements of Restorative Practices. During the session we will discuss the different kinds of circles and their 4 elements: Community Building, Peace, Repair and Celebration. Understanding these elements will allow us to address how to be actionable in belonging, equity, and inclusion. Assessing and analyzing these methods will set us up for Part 2 where participants will learn how to be creative, resourceful and understanding in the day-to-day operation and ask ourselves how we are building trust, enhancing communication while reducing harm.
