Why DEI, and what does that mean anyway?
DEI is an acronym that stands for diversity, equity, and inclusion. It is frequently used in the educational world specifically when aiming to create communities that empower and uplift the individual voice to build a collective culture. This culture is one that promotes inclusive culturally competent environment s of learning which often result in higher academic gains and deeper social awareness.
Along with our combination of skill building, reflection and mindfulness practice, we design each program to fit the unique needs of the community we are supporting. We acknowledge the 'messiness' that goes along with navigating biases, misunderstandings, internalization, and similar emotions associated with mindset growth. This 'messiness' needs both brave and safe spaces to release and build forward. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training provides this space.
Our workshops focus on teacher development, team building sessions, initial assessments, and direct coaching to promote a mindfully inclusive community.
