Webinar Series – Responding to Events of Racism in School-Based Relationships: Topics in Educational Equity

Series overview: Our work in schools is fundamentally relational. The ways we treat each other create an environment that is either empowering and connecting, or marginalising and oppressive. This series focuses on anti-racism within school-based relationships: how we treat each other in unmonitored social spaces, the words we say to each other, and the ways we resolve our conflicts. Through activities, case studies, and discussion/reflection, we learn what harms and what heals educational relationships.

Webinar 2 – Responding to Racist Flare-ups on Social Media

with Marceline DuBose, Ed.M.

Have you encountered instances of students posting racist content on social media? School communities might feel that these incidents and the solutions are out of their control. However, we actually have quite a bit of leverage, and both the incident trajectory and response by schools, students, and the broader community are predictable. Through case studies and reflection, this session provides educators with an array of approaches to address racism that occurs on social media.
