Stop Causing Harm in Equity Work: Racial Affinity Groups in Schools

Saturday, July 31 from 9:30-1:30 PT (synchronous) + 2 hours asynchronous

Many folks think that racial affinity groups are racist or separatist. They actually are a space for healing, deeper learning, and reflection. If you are prepared to avoid the pitfalls, racial affinity groups can help you dismantle white supremacy culture and build antiracist schools.

Year Long Racial Affinity Cohort Course (follow-up to Racial Affinity Introductory Workshop)

August 2021 through May 2022

Rather than a “train the trainer” model, this course is designed for participants to expand their understanding of racial affinity work by engaging with one another in racial affinity groups. This will be an opportunity for participants to truly experience what it looks, sounds and feels like to engage in racial affinity work so that they can engage others in the work upon returning to their schools and organizations.

What People Are Saying

 

“Jen brings the type of care and compassion to the learning she designs like no other. She seamlessly blends theory & practice, so that those she is teaching or coaching are able to access new insights, and be ready to put that learning into action.”

Andrew Biros

Continuation Coordinator, New Tech Network

 

“It’s easy to see that Jen’s heart and skills are focused on serving students and communities on the margins. This isn’t just a principle that factors in to her work; it’s THE principle around which she builds the rest of her thoughtful work. She has pushed me and all the rooms I’ve been in with her to consider each learner and to push back on legacy structures that disenfranchise the oppressed. Jen pours her whole, wonderful self into the service of this mission.”

Matt Thompson

School Development Coach, New Tech Network

 

“Jen designs professional development that elevates opportunities for each student by preparing teachers and principals to listen to student voice, create learning environments that meet the needs of each student, and connect across the school community. She is a leader in facilitating high-functioning and reflective working groups by using appropriate protocols to engage adult learners by looking at relevant data and contextualizing it in meaningful research. She is one of the most values-driven colleagues with whom I have had the pleasure to work.”
