Event description

Description

Educators across Virginia are asking themselves how they can better work toward creating more inclusive schools where every student and educator knows that they can truly belong, achieve, and contribute to their school community. This question is being asked with more urgency and frequency in response to recent incidents of bias and prejudice at schools and in communities. In fact, the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities has had to respond to a 1,300% increase in requests for support after incidents of bias, bullying, or discrimination within the past two years.

To support school administrators, educators, staff, and students, VCIC invites public and private school educators from across Hampton Roads to register for this Teachable Moments Educator Workshop. This 6-hour professional development session will cover a range of topics, including learning about how bias and prejudice affect schools, developing a shared language for exploring barriers to inclusion, gaining perspectives on how to prevent and respond to hurtful comments, and considering ways to effectively and educationally navigate controversial topics by turning them in to teachable moments.

This session is made possible by the Tidewater Jewish Foundation. Lunch and all program materials are provided at no cost to participating educators.

Please call or email Jessica Hawthorne, VCIC's Director of Programs with any questions (jhawthorne@inclusiveVA.org).

Space is limited and only available to public and independent school educators in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. All registrations are subject to review of geographic location prior to confirmation of attendance.
