Introduction to Courageous Conversation as a foundation for de-institutionalizing racism and eliminating the racial achievement gap
The Beyond Diversity Seminar, updated and aligned with Courageous Conversations About Race, 2nd Edition, is designed to help teachers, students, parents, and administrators understand the impact of race on student learning and investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing academic achievement disparities. Enrollment is an indication that you are poised for inquiry into your own personal investment in racism and desire greater accountability surrounding your professional leadership for racial equity. Participants will be introduced to the CCAR Protocol: the 4 Agreements, 6 Conditions and the Compass and explore the use of the Protocol when engaging in courageous conversations centered around race and racism.
You will engage in a thoughtful, compassionate exploration of race and racism and grapple with how each influences the culture and climate of our schools; and practice using the CCAR Protocol for identifying and addressing policies, programs, and practices that negatively impact achievement for students of color and serve as barriers for ALL students receiving a world-class education.
This training is brought to you by The Network, in partnership with CESAs 8, 9, and 12.
- Engage in courageous conversations and sustained interracial dialogue about race.
- Reflect on race and racism and discover how each, through school policies, programs, and practices negatively impacts low-performing student populations.
- Develop the knowledge and skills for engaging, sustaining and deepening courageous conversations about the impact of race and racism on student achievement.
