Discovering Performance Through DEI for Educators
(4 hrs.)

Education is the process of equipping students to live productive lives. From children to adults, there are many educational techniques and challenges.  Unruly students who may not, actually, be bad – just misunderstood. People who just can’t seem to be able to learn may, actually, just be struggling because they have a different life experience from which to understand lessons.In addition to the pedagogical challenges, there are challenges in running an educational institution. Staff who don’t get along may not understand how to communicate with those not like them because they were never given the skills to do so. Leaders may unconsciously impose discipline in an inequitable manner because they were never trained in a restorative justice model.Living into diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) can have a profound positive impact on both the instructional and administrative aspects of education.  But it takes commitment and intentionality by everyone in the institution.
