Event description
Join a virtual cohort with global educators to explore the topic of racial equity in education.

About this event

In this monthly group, we will get together to collaborate, learn about, and discuss racial equity and diversity in schools. Each month’s session will focus on a particular topic and will include both information and opportunities for interaction. Monica Belton, along with MiniPD, will share their expertise and facilitate the dialogue each month as the cohort learns, shares, and grows together.

Why Attend?

Here is what 2020-2021 cohort participants had to say!

"If you're new to DEI or anti-racist education, this is a fantastic way to gain historical insights and practical resources to use in the classroom. It's also a helpful way to connect with other educators to share ideas." -Kellee Webb, Director of College Guidance, The Gunston School, Maryland
"This PLC provided an opportunity to learn and collaborate with educators from all over the world. I really enjoyed being able to learn from the facilitator based on her expertise and experience and then also have space to learn together in school groups. This really felt like a true professional learning community and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to further their commitment and develop practices for creating a more racially inclusive environment in their school." -Ashley Black, Director of IB Programmes and DEI, Escuela Bilingual Internacional, California
"I learned so much from this course, from definitions to action plans! The presenter is amazing and I would attend anything else that she would be presenting!" -Jennifer de Lima, Teacher, St. Thomas More Catholic School, North Carolina
"This PLC has been great for connecting with other educators, learning more about equity and sharing experiences." -Tiwana Merritt, Service Learning Coordinator and T&L Coach, American International School of Johannesburg, South Africa
