Event description

Description

Beyond Diversity has been described as a powerful, personally transforming two-day seminar. While typically offered to school personnel to explore the impact of race in academic settings, this Beyond Diversity seminar is designed to help participants from the New Trier community at large to engage in a thoughtful, compassionate exploration of race and racism. We will grapple with how each influences the culture and climate of our broader environment, negatively impacts achievement and serves as barriers for ALL. This experience includes opportunities that move participants on their journey based on where they are personally first. Beyond Diversity strives to create an environment that enables equity and success for all. This involves confronting how people of different racial backgrounds understand and interact with each other. For many, the experience creates a level of trust and understanding around racial equity that did not exist previously.

This seminar will be facilitated by Affiliates of the Pacific Educational Group at New Trier. We are excited to offer it for the first time to the New Trier community at large.

The seminar will run from 8 AM until 4:00 PM each day in room C234 at the Northfield Campus on 7 Happ Road, Northfield, Illinois. It is essential that you commit to the entire 2 days in order to benefit from this experience. If you cannot commit to the entire time, we ask that you do this at another time.
