Event description

Description

This is a two-day workshop.

Course Description

The two-day Beyond Diversity seminar is the foundation (prerequisite) for all equity leadership development. WMEP recommends a common protocol for racial discourse, and the Courageous Conversations™ protocol is introduced in this workshop. Beyond Diversity is designed to help leaders, educators, students, parents, and community understand the impact of race on student achievement and the role that racism plays in institutionalized academic achievement disparities.


About the Presenters

Savanah Abeyta Neitzel, M.Ed. in Second Language Education, serves as an Academic Achievement Coach, Consultant, and Trainer at West Metro Education Program (WMEP). Her English language (EL) teaching experience includes K-5 and 9-12 settings, both in the Twin Cities area and abroad. Savanah, a brown, fourth generation Mexican-American, is especially passionate about helping educators build their capacity in the areas of culturally and linguistically responsive instruction and anti-racist advocacy to eliminate racial disparities in achievement.

Anthony Galloway is an actor, storyteller, and Senior Equity and Student Programs Coach/Trainer for the West Metro Education Program. Anthony has worked in experiential learning and community engagement for over 15 years. While traveling to South Africa for the 10-year celebration of the election of Nelson Mandela, he was part of an American student delegation studying the effects of apartheid on the new South Africa. It was here that he found his passion for multiple perspectives on race and ethnicity after interviewing more than 20 people who worked and were imprisoned with Nelson Mandela. Most recently, Anthony has worked with Dr. Patrick Duffy to create and expand a regional network of anti-racist students leaders, and the work is featured in a co-authored chapter in the book, More Courageous Conversations about Race (Singleton, 2012).
