Urban School Board Member Empowerment Series
Wed, Jun 28, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jun 30, 2017, 12:00 PM CDT
The purpose of Empowerment to Tackle Challenges workshop series for urban school board members is to provide participants with the theoretical and practical tools needed to overcome today’s educational challenges. By focusing on four topical paradigms, this workshop supports the full professional and personal growth of these urban educational leaders. These four paradigms are: cross-cultural conflict resolution, intercultural awareness and self-discovery, mindfulness in organizational setting, and equity-focused communication. Each paradigm facilitates the exploration and learning of key issues, concepts, ideas, understandings, and practices in the domain of American urban education. Throughout this three-day workshop, participants will engage with challenging ideas, reflect on contemporary practices, and undertake serious revision of existing solutions and remedies. Because of this learning experience, participants will leave as more able conflict mediators, more culturally aware and mindful leaders, and more effective communicators and community partners.
