What can I do? It’s a common question we hear in response to racial events that show up in the news and occur in our own communities.

Reframing Racism provides an opportunity for people to build a foundational understanding around equity, diversity and inclusion and understand their role in advancing this work within their personal and professional communities.

During this training series, participants will:

  • Explore how race was constructed
  • Build common language around equity, diversity and inclusion
  • Analyze current events
  • Learn new tools to support in the advancement of this work
  • Connect with others and participate in a learning community

This workshop will include:

  • Facilitated dialogue and discussion
  • Experiential learning activities
  • Assigned readings and viewings

Training and racial affinity group sessions occur in-person

CEI will gladly issue PDUs via CEI certificate for educators.  Participants must work with district and TSPC to verify acceptance.
