Time: 9:00 - 10:15am (ET)

Workshop Description:

Creating a school culture that is authentically culturally responsive requires a leader to think through a culturally responsive, equitable, and critical consciousness lens. This two-part course supports anyone who leads in a formal education setting and who wishes to better serve students who have been historically underserved or marginalized.

Participants will begin to shape and articulate their vision for a culturally responsive school and explore the frameworks and actions that will support them in authentically transforming their school spaces.

Learning Outcomes:

After participating in this session, educators will:

  • Identify the frameworks that underpin culturally responsive leadership
  • Reflect on leadership mindsets and practices that promote deficit thinking, inequities and create limited opportunities for some students
  • Design a needs assessment/mini equity analysis to better inform their direction
  • Draft a vision statement for a culturally responsive school

Certification of Completion:

Please note that participants will not receive academic credit nor a transcript documenting their participation in this workshop series. However, all participants will receive a certificate of completion.
