Holding Sovereignty in My PWI (Network & Fellows)

February 19 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

Holding Sovereignty in My PWI (Network & Fellows)

In anti-racism work and in creating racially affirming environments, there is an unstated pressure on educators that asserts, “This is all on you”. This session invites educators to examine how to simultaneously acknowledge this pressure, name where the structure is upholding systems of oppression, and also care for our quality of life. While caring for our quality of life we do this by supporting educators to show up in their fullest humanity for students and their families.

Note: Primary session content will be delivered in English. Interpretation is available and can be requested in the registration form. If this is something you’d appreciate, please register by Feb 5 so we can plan ahead.
