The relationship between Self-Reflection and Diversity and Inclusion

CA Perkins-JSPAC Equity Action (5) Webinar Series
iii. The relationship between Self-Reflection and Diversity and Inclusion

April 25, 3:30 PM PST
Online Webinar

Presenter: Dr. Helen Griffith - CEO/Executive Director of e3 Civic High

Inclusion begins with understanding the self. Often many diversity and inclusion initiatives focus only on diversity from the level of demographics-the difference of languages, religions, values, and abilities. However, these initiatives often omit a focus on culture, inclusiveness, and authenticity. They fail to recognize each person is different even if they belong to the same ethnic group, community, or family. As practitioners, we perceive ourselves to be fair. Very few people intentionally exclude or discriminate against others. But our innate biases mean that we unconsciously and unintentionally exclude people who are dissimilar to us.

This webinar will provide practitioners with strategies to help increase their ability to form authentic and effective relationships across differences by understanding the relationship between self-reflection and diversity and inclusion.

Disrupting the patterns of inequity- What does it mean to disrupt inequity in education?

CA Perkins-JSPAC Equity Action (5) Webinar Series
iv. Disrupting the patterns of inequity- What does it mean to disrupt inequity in education?

May 9, 3:30 PM PST
Online Webinar

Presenter: William Blackford IV - William Blackford IV Consulting, & Senior Consultant for Franklin Covey International and Education Division & Keynote Speaker @ JSPAC Equity Conference 2018

Resources alone are not enough to truly create equitable education for our students in California. We must, as practitioners of K-12, Adult Education, and Community Colleges create opportunities to have a dialogue about recognizing the patterns of inequity in education for students of color. We must focus our conversations on moving toward an educational system that does not immortalize and discriminate, thus hindering opportunities for students of color to achieve their education and career life goals.

This webinar will provide practitioners with approaches that allow for facilitation of conversations on race and equity with colleagues, family, friends, employers, and community.

Deficit Thinking to Asset Thinking: Teacher Strength and Student Strength

CA Perkins-JSPAC Equity Action (5) Webinar Series
v. Deficit Thinking to Asset Thinking: Teacher Strength and Student Strength

May 23, 3:30 PM PST
Online Webinar

Presenter-William Blackford IV - William Blackford IV Consulting, & Senior Consultant for Franklin Covey International and Education Division & Keynote Speaker @ JSPAC Equity Conference 2018

Too often education solutions to close achievement gaps for students of color, underserved, special populations, non-traditional, are approached with a deficit model. “School practices and assumptions emerging from the deficit paradigm often hide student and teacher abilities. These assumptions are especially powerful because they are unspoken. We overlook our taken-for-granted ideas and practices to an extraordinary degree” (Weiner, L, 2006). Often the professional development training aimed at deficit thinking is about students based on the practitioner's deficit however both teacher and student deficit thinking overshadow their abilities.

This webinar will provide practitioners with an asset model approach from the lens of strength based thinking for both practitioners and student.
