Growing in Cultural Competence
Developing cultural competence is a process rather than an endpoint. Just like any skill, the process of development and improvement continues, and it is hard to point to a particular time when one can say, “That’s it! I’ve reached it!” There are many ways by which we can increase our capacity to be effective in our interactions with others. In this engagement, participants will be encouraged to use the reflective and reflexive lens as a means of unpacking power and privilege and acknowledging the impact of this privilege and power in their work environment.

Culturally Relevant and Responsive Pedagogy
Culturally Relevant and Response Pedagogy (CRRP), in recent times, has been the go-to approach to ensure equity diversity and inclusion (EDI) is evidenced within the curriculum.
However, in far too many schools, what we see is an “add-on here or there where appropriate to often satisfy a mandated approach to EDI within the Classroom. CRRP is more than an add-on. It speaks to the very disposition of the educator, their planning, preparation and everyday practice. In this workshop, participants will examine the tenets of culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy and decide on practical ways to center the ideas of equity and belonging within their teaching and learning engagement.

Holding High Expectations of all Students
Do we see our students? Do we value what they bring to the teaching and learning dynamics? Do we interact with them based on our assumptions, biases and stereotypical outcomes? In this workshop, we continue the focus on CRRP. We examine how we must engage ALL students by first holding high expectations for them.

Becoming a Champion for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Inclusion, equity, and diversity bring with them many intersecting challenges, uncertainty, and grey areas. Each term adds a different and unique dimension to understanding the relations of power at work. To unpack this, we need to know how to work together to build an inclusive culture in the workplace. How do we get to be an active participant in the philosophy and practice of equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace? Can we bring others on board? Do we know how to implement the change we need? This workshop takes you on an inspiring and informative journey towards becoming Diversity Champions.

“Advocacy often has no manual. It is more about being brave and standing between the vulnerable and power. It is a brave space. It is an exposed space.” (DR.ABC, June 17, 2020).
Doing the work advocacy within your organization is often challenging as you are personally situated closer to the issues and closer to the systems of oppression. This workshop will engage participants to examine the urgency with which change must happen within systems, institutions and organizations to dismantle inequities, discriminations, and denials.
