Striving for Equity Through Strong Relationships


Every student deserves the opportunity to flourish in a school that celebrates them, imbues them with a sense of belonging, and empowers them with individualized supports. Creating such an equitable system requires educators to employ culturally responsive practices, examine implicit biases, and, now more than ever, build lasting relationships. In this workshop, participants will explore strategies for promoting equity through strong relationships with students, families, and the community.
