The Diversity Initiative at Riverside is intended to promote personal growth and pedagogical approaches that support equity-minded education and global competencies in our schools.
Learn how to implement critically conscious practices such as:
• Pre-school and Elementary educators will learn about stages of early awareness of difference and developmentally appropriate diversity work in the classroom and beyond.
• Middle and High School educators will learn about experiences across difference and inclusive classroom practices that improve outcomes for all.
• Work collaboratively to explore curricular approaches, activities, lessons and units of study.
• Engage with educators from other schools.
• Gain practical resources to further the diversity and inclusion work at your school.
The Diversity Initiative at Riverside is suitable for all PreK–12 educators, especially:
• Teachers interested in integrating a diversity, equity and inclusion framework into their teaching practice.
• School librarians, instructional coaches, department chairs, or school counselors who can find useful applications for the materials presented.
• Administrators and Diversity Practitioners hoping to transform their schools and better support their faculty/staff engaging in this work.
• Develop activities, lessons, and units of study that promote an understanding of the value of diversity and inclusion.
• Identify your current teaching practice and set goals for incorporating meaningful diversity, equity and inclusion pedagogy into daily teaching.
• Connect with other educators to deepen understanding, provide inspiration, and promote learning.
