Event Details

Beyond Celebration and Special Months: Transforming into Equitable and Inclusive Schools

Most schools have a well-established practice of celebrating different groups and creating programs to acknowledge special months, however they continue to struggle with creating authentically equitable and inclusive schools. Workshop participants will explore steps necessary to recruit and retain a diverse student, faculty and staff body, by conducting a holistic assessment of their institution. Participants should leave with a clearer sense of how to implement successful long-term strategies that will achieve the institutionalization of equitable and inclusive practices.

 

Leader: Jorge Zeballos

Jorge Zeballos is the Latino Community Coordinator and International Student Advisor of the Multicultural Education Department at Guilford College, and a member of Guilford’s Anti-Racism Team. Born in Washington, DC, he grew up in Peru and is a community organizer at the Institute for Dismantling Racism in Winston-Salem. Mr. Zeballos was featured as the keynote speaker at the 13th Biennial Hispanic Latino Collegiate Forum and the White Privilege Conference in 2011.

Organizer

Virginia Diversity Network

The Virginia Diversity Network was created as an association for Virginia independent schools to help promote diversity within our individual school cultures.  

Each school year, the network offers a variety of workshops and programs for faculty and administration, as well as a space for honest dialogue about identity work and inclusion in our schools.

The Virginia Diversity Network seeks to promote deeper understanding of diversity at individual schools and develops programming that explores the concepts of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, socioeconomic status, ability, and sexual orientation, among all other diverse dimensions.
