Educators of Color Affinity/Resource Group

iChange Collaborative - We offer inclusivity consulting and training workshops to businesses, schools, community organizations, and government agencies.

"Because there is a dearth of teachers of color in the field, the teachers of color who are there bear a disproportionate burden."

Let's Get Real: Exploring Race, Class, and Gender Identities in the Classroom, by Martha Caldwell and Oman Frame

Virtual Edition

Join us on Zoom!!

For people of color to come together in community 

♦Find support in a thriving community of educators.

♦Increase your DEI leadership capacity.

♦Learn through sharing ideas and resources.

This virtual resource group explores how race impacts teachers of color in their lives and work. It provides opportunities to connect with likeminded professionals who share common experiences as well as a commitment to racial equity and justice. Through this forum, educators of color find support from and connection with educators who share their passions, as well as their challenges.

Our conversations and accompanying resources offer ongoing encouragement designed to support and reinforce the work we do. We share stories, experiences, ideas, and successes in a live online forum.
