Discovery Session—Understanding Leads to Change: Exploring Racism in Ourselves, Our Schools, and Our Country

If we are to become anti-racist and pursue educational equity in our communities, we must first understand the depth, complexities, and power of racism and white supremacy in our country. This session will complete our start on the work that is necessary to achieve racial equity and educational equity in your community. We will explore the four levels of racism, which is a framework that helps us understand, talk about, and begin to plan for how to change ourselves and our communities. This session will provide resources and experiences that will help you understand the inequities you seek to eliminate.

Session Outcomes 

In this session, we will continue to: 
  • Build a clearer understanding of the four levels of racism: structural racism, institutional, interpersonal and internal racism;  
  • Learn to talk about race constructively within our schools and communities and amongst friends, family, and colleagues; 
  • Increase awareness on history and legacy of race in American economic and policy development; racial identity and its interaction with institutional culture.
