Culturally Responsive Professional Learning: What is it.. and what isn’t it?

August 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

During this harried political time, lines between SEL, DEI, and CRT have become blurry. As providers, educators, and school stakeholders, we may be wondering what to talk about, how to talk about it, and how it fits within the frame of high-quality professional learning in SEL. 

Instead of looking for change somewhere inside an exhausting and often fruitless game of district-level semantics and political agendas, let’s put our energies into another pursuit. Let us try a new approach to embody the stance of abolitionists and radically take a stand to empower all stakeholders through learning, regardless of what politics might ensue, because all students, and adults, have a right to thrive. 

Our panelist include:

  • Brandon Frame, Director of Social Emotional Learning at The Urban Assembly
  • Eboni Rucker, Restorative Justice at School Districts 205, Olympia Fields, Illinois
  • Vero Ortiz, Social Emotional Learning Specialist at Chicago Public Schools
  • Dr. Michael Mallery Jr., Ph.D., District Administrator of SEL, Windsor Public Schools

Join us for an engaging discussion on the role of professional learning in this new age of SEL. Come with your questions, your concerns, and your stories. All voices welcome!
