This half-day experience uses engaging videos, provocative readings, hands-on activities, and SRI protocols so that you will leave with:

  1. The ability to articulate the differences between diversity, inclusion, and equity work

  2. A vocabulary of anti-oppression

  3. An exploration of socio-cultural identities  

  4. An in-depth examination of overt and hidden oppression in schools and orgs

  5. Tools and resources to threaten the existence of injustice in your spaces

  6. The desire to engage in and lead anti-oppression work 

Equity Not Diversity: Engaging in and Leading Anti-Oppression Work in Education and Organizations

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. These are current buzz words in education and beyond but we must ask:

  • When are Diversity initiatives harmful?

  • Why is Inclusivity not enough?

  • What does Equity work look, sound, and feel like?

 

In this four-hour seminar, grow your awareness and skills to shift your work from "Non" oppressive to "Anti" oppressive. You will:

  • Explore identities and biases that deeply impact our work with colleagues and those we serve.

  • Wrestle with present-day examples of racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, cis-sexism, etc. in education. 

  • Practice responding to and redressing these -isms in your context.

"For Amber to be such a 'rock star' as an emerging equity consultant, she walks very humbly. In doing so she is very disarming and has a gift for connecting with people where they are. I believe this is important for building trust so people can speak their truths.... Another quality of Amber’s is to see an issue from the 30,000 foot level, yet penetrate it from the ground up....Her powerful stories gives rise to her ability to socially analyze always reading between the lines to understand who is winning, who is losing, who has power and who is being disenfranchised, and a knack for differentiating historical events that create today’s inequities. Amber believes that one cannot imagine equity without understanding inequity."
