Training Overview

Race EXPONENTIALLY changes students’ outcomes. Understand intersectionality and fight oppression.

Multiple layers of oppression affect your students. Many are harmed by layer-upon-layer of bias stemming from race, gender, nationality, immigration status, sexual orientation, and similar social identities. Conversely, others benefit from privilege based on the same categories.

In the wake of the Derek Chauvin trial, the world continues to wrestle with systemic bias without dramatically transforming the reality for youth. The COVID-19 pandemic has created even greater hardships for students without fast Internet connectivity, quiet spaces, time to focus on learning, and sufficient food.

Race exponentially changes students’ outcomes. You need to implement programs to enable them to excel beyond the wrongful labels and mistaken assumptions imposed by other students, faculty, and staff members while providing necessary resources. All stakeholders must be engaged in fighting oppression.
