Race Conscious White Educators Resource Group

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

Virtual Edition

Join us online!!

The 2019-20 White Race Conscious Educators Group offers you the opportunity connect with likeminded professionals who share your commitment to racial equality and collaborate through sharing stories, experiences, ideas, and resources. Six times during the school year, educators from a variety of settings and locations meet online to support each other’s development as race conscious educators.

To be better allies to our students and colleagues of color, we start by taking a look at ourselves. We focus on increasing  awareness of our racial identities so we can better support theirs. What does it means to be white? How does guilt get in the way? How can we have productive conversations about race with other white people? How is your white identity impacted by today’s polarized political climate? What is the path from colorblindness to race consciousness? How do you get there and how can you use your work to guide others?

In this virtual forum, white educators assume greater responsibility for educating themselves (and other white educators) about race so they can better educate their students. Our conversations and accompanying resources offer ongoing encouragement to support and reinforce the race conscious work we do.

We will meet on the following dates and times:

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 @ 6:00 – 7:00 pm EST

Monday, October 14, 2019 @ 6:00 – 7:00 pm EST

Facilitated by Martha Caldwell

Martha Caldwell, iChange co-founder, facilitates the group.
