Equity and Inclusion in Florida Independent Schools
June 8-11, 2020 | 8:30 am to 4:00 pm | $455.00 | Shorecrest Preparatory School | 5101 First Street NE St. Petersburg, FL 33703 

This course is designed to augment and enhance the experience of individuals who work within the fields of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in independent schools in Florida.

The workshop will be designed around 3 components:

  • Identity
  • Otherness
  • Open Conversations in Brave Spaces

It is essential for students to have the ability to interact with the diverse and rich cultures of the world, not only with the people within their community. Diversity and inclusion are not about just what people look like, but also about diversity of thought, diversity of access, and diversity of experience. The more exposure our children have to the ideas of equity and inclusion, the better prepared global leaders they will become. In order to create these global citizens, students, faculty, staff, administrators, board members, and PARENTS have to dive deeply into the areas of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by looking at their own identities.

Identity work is the basis for engaging conversations and the ability to see the world through a lens contradictory to our own.
