The purpose of this presentation is to empower educators to be more inclusive by considering how to create an anti-racist and diverse education. The purpose is also to empower diverse educators to affect the decision making on their campuses. We hope to encourage diverse educators to grow and enrich their own teaching and learning to empower them to participate in more decision making opportunities (a seat at the table).
--Participants will be able to proactively advocate for themselves and their students.
--Participants will build confidence in their ability to champion for their voice to be heard during educational decision-making opportunities, including technology implementation.
--Participants who are educational leaders will be able to self-reflect on their inclusion of more diverse educators in the decision making process.
