Description

Supporting Healthy Identity Development in a School Community: The Why and How of Racial Identity Groups (LA)

The term “affinity group” refers to a gathering of people who all share a similar identity. Purposefully and thoughtfully designed racial affinity groups enhance cross-cultural communication and provide a space for reflection, dialogue, and support. These kinds of groups offer a time and space for empowerment of the individual and of the group within the greater community. At their best, racial affinity groups are a powerful tool in creating an inclusive and thriving learning environment.

This workshop will provide training for educators who are currently facilitating, or considering implementing, racial affinity groups. We will share theory, practice, and structures for elementary through high school students, staff, and parents. The day will also address the specfiic and varying needs of people of color and white anti-racist affinity groups. Scope and sequence templates, sample curricula, communication, and best practices will be shared. We will also discuss strategies for engaging resistance. Participants will leave with practical tools and resources to support creating and leading their own affinity groups at their school sites.

This workshop is aimed at educators who are seeking to learn more about implementing and leading affinity spaces, including diversity practitioners, deans of students, division directors, and others.
