Description

Surviving and Sustaining People of Color in Independent Schools (Bay Area)

This full-day workshop serves to encourage local collaboration and provide tangible takeaways that affirm the experiences of People of Color (PoC) in independent schools and the broader community. Intended for people of color who are doing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work in their school communities, participants will have the opportunity to bring to light common challenges and successes regarding DEI topics and collaborate on bringing positive change.

Facilitated by The San Francisco Equity Leaders (SFEL) a cohort of DEI Directors from five local independent schools, this workshop will be a brave space for PoCs who are dedicated to working to disrupt the inequity that exists in education. Participants will leave with new energy to seek out and speak out “what’s next?” as well as with new tools and strategies to develop strategic partnerships that can help move their institution from awareness to action and a culture of co-conspirators.

The SFEL team will present Layering On The Overcoats, A PoC Pack: a checklist that aims to affirm people of colors’ experiences, and the additional burden we carry while navigating the world of independent schools. The PoC Pack brings to light daily microaggressions, addresses cumulative effects on PoCs, and reminds participants that PoCs are not alone in the struggle. This will be the foundation from which we will explore how to organize across schools, starting the important work of transforming historically exclusive communities into inclusive organizations. In smaller groups, participants will collaborate to create action plans to take back to their schools.
