Target Audience

This event is for middle and upper school educators.



Our schools talk about teaching the whole student or instilling confidence, yet do we know about the whole cultural selves of the children and adults we serve, and are all identities affirmed? How do group identities like female, African American, Buddhist, homosexual, middle class, etc. affect experiences in our schools? What messages do we receive and send about these cultural identities? Learn the differences that result in one person having a healthy self identity and another person experiencing own-group shame and hatred. Though self discovery, affirmation of others, and collaborative work across difference, identify ways to create a community where difference is normal and value added, knowledge about difference is taught intentionally, and affirmation of all differences is practiced regularly.
