Webinar Series – Responding to Events of Racism in School-Based Relationships: Topics in Educational Equity
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 1 – Recognizing and Addressing Harmful Language
with Rachel Logan, M.Ed and Marceline DuBose, Ed.M.
Language is powerful and, especially if our circles are small and we spend time in primarily homogeneous groups, we might have a hard time recognizing harmful language. In this webinar, we identify some phrases we should stop using, examine swaps we might try instead, and collaborate on ways to be more inclusive and expansive with the language we choose to use.
