Workshop Description
Participants are in for an engaging, challenging and supportive journey as we work together to cultivate a stronger awareness of our own racial socialization, how it impacts the way we view the world and what we can do to challenge those mental models. Using our life experiences and professional resources, we will investigate personal and institutional racism and create tools and strategies we can use that challenge racism within our school system and community.

The workshop is free. Lunch is not provided. For more information, contact the Department of Education at 660.785.4386 or email Jeanne Harding.
