Race-Work Training 

Dr. Lori A. Watson

Friday, March 19th 9am-5pm

Dr. Lori A. Watson describes this work as "humanity work, to disrupt and dismantle the inherently racist educational system that holds students back, educators must be inherently anti-racist.  This requires consistently considering how we unwittingly assist in the reproduction of a racial order through our everyday interactions with students, in addition to our everyday experiences outside of schools.  Digging deep into racial equity work helps educators begin to deconstruct often unconscious personal biases and beliefs, develop the knowledge and skills to challenge and disrupt them, thereby moving themselves closer to an elevated level of personal and professional racial consciousness."

Race-Work training will be held via Zoom and is open to all classified staff, faculty, and administrators.  We ask that you register to participate with a teammate.  We are looking for a maximum of 30 teams of two people to participate.  Participants will commit to the 7.5 hour training and future share back and implementation that connects to the training.  Only one person from each team needs to register.

Deadline to register your team is February 19th, 2021

Sign up for Race-Work Training here.
