Description

Leading for Equity and Inclusion: Recruitment, Hiring, Retention, Climate and Accountability (Bay Area)

The goal of this workshop is for independent school faculty and administrators to explore the boundaries of change to increase equity and meaningful inclusion for all members of their school communities.

This Intensive will provide opportunities to reflect on, discuss, and adapt approaches and practices that move schools in the direction of greater cultural competence in the policies and procedures that govern hiring, retention, and climate.

During the full day workshop we will explore the following questions:

  • What does cultural competence mean in independent schools? What would your school look like and how would it function if every teacher, administrator, and staff member were working to improve their cultural competence?

  • Who has the cultural capital to create change that increases equity and meaningful inclusion in your school? Who takes the lead? Who deals with the pushback? Who pays the costs? Who benefits?

  • What strategies work to recruit culturally competent faculty, administrators, and staff for your school to join you in this work? What existing patterns and structures in hiring get in the way of doing this?

  • What practical strategies can you use to ensure that your hiring processincluding search committee selection, application paper screening (resumes, supplemental question responses, etc), question development and methods of candidate evaluation, as well as search committee processes and practicesresults in your hiring the best culturally competent candidate?

  • What does cultural competence look like when applied to your school’s accountability measures for your faculty? For your administrators? For your staff?

This workshop is ideal for teacher leaders, department chairs, deans, program directors, heads of school, and other administrators who are directly connected to the hiring process. To amplify the outcomes, we encourage you to attend with a team from your school.
