“Not racist” is not enough. We have to actively create antiracist spaces for a more equitable world.
This workshop will take participants through a process of exploring the question: What is antiracist teaching? We will use mindfulness exercises, video, discussion, and self-reflection to examine examples of racist mistakes teachers have made and explore tools for what antiracist teaching looks like and sounds like. Participants will leave with a developed understanding of what antiracist teaching is and how it can transform their teaching practice.
Join us for an engaging, interactive workshop designed to challenge traditional teaching practices and learn how to harness the power of antiracism.
Our mission is to dismantle racism and promote social justice through educational videos, trainings and workshops for aspiring antiracist parents, teachers, kids and organizations.
Our vision is to raise the next generation of antiracist leaders and dismantle racism, one lesson at a time. We provide support to educators, organizations and families with services inclusive of: 1:1 family coaching, on demand and live virtual courses, Teacher and Administrator Coaching, Professional Development Workshops, Live & Asynchronous Trainings, Equity Audits, Speaking Engagements, 1:1 Executive DEI Coaching, Marketing & Communications Support and DEI Assessments & Data Analysis.
