Summer Diversity Institute for Educators

Please join us for the iChange 2019 Summer Diversity Institute for Educators in Atlanta, GA, June 17-20, where we will focus on facilitating Dynamic Dialogues about race, gender, class, and other social identities.

Hear students discuss the outcomes of Dynamic Dialogues:

Previous attendees have called the iChange Institute “transformative,” “profound,” and “a significant professional growth process.” Co-directors Oman Frame and Martha Caldwell, veteran Paideia School teachers and founders of iChange Collaborative, guide conversations that are rarely broached, yet utterly compelling in their potential to stimulate growth and change. They stress the importance of incorporating best practices for diversity and inclusion activism at every level of education.

The Institute is open to teachers of all disciplines and grade levels, as well as diversity directors, admissions directors, counselors, department heads, and community organizers. Educators leave with renewed enthusiasm and commitment, but also with action plans and lesson plans they can put into effect immediately.

Please see the attached flyer for details. If you know of teachers, counselors, administrators or staff who can benefit from this important and timely professional development opportunity, please pass this information along.

The Transformational Inquiry model can help your students explore their own identies, share stories and thoughts with their peers, learn more through reading and research, and ultimately take personal, collaborative action to affect social change in their communities.

The iChange Institute was the most moving experience of my fifteen year life in America. Thanks you for your great work and nonjudging atmosphere. I am looking forward to sharing what I learned with my colleagues and students.
