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!!

For white educators committed to dismantling racism

Come together in community to:

♦Find support in a thriving community of educators.

♦Increase your DEI leadership/followship capacity.

♦Learn through sharing ideas and resources.

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.

We explore questions like “What does it means to be white?” “How can guilt get in the way?” “How can we guide productive conversations about race with other white people?” “How is our own white identity impacted by today’s polarized political climate?” “What is the path from colorblindness to race consciousness?” “How do we get there and how can we use our expertise as educators to guide others?”

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.

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.

This has been a wonderful experience for me-positive, well facilitated-a huge learning curve for me and for what I can bring back to my school and share.
