Thanks for your interest in an Equity-focused workshop with The Discovery Center. There are 3 separate workshop formats and each will be offered multiple times throughout the year.
 

1. Intro to Equity (2-hour workshop)
In this brief, 2-hour workshop participants will be led through the ‘Equity in Practice’ Guidelines and the ‘5 Co-Creating Equity Shifts’. This workshop is designed as an introduction to the basic principles of Equity in Education.
     - Open to any individual or community member
     - Maximum enrollment per workshop: 30 participants
     - Dates Available:
             11/16/2017 6:00pm-8:00pm

2. Equity in Practice (6-hour workshop)
This day-long workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to engage more deeply with the ‘Equity in Practice’ Guidelines and the ‘5 Co-Creating Equity Shifts.’ This workshop will help participants explore their own identity and process of socialization because this is the basis of the work to ensure equity in any system. We are all a confluence of various identities—both target (marginalized) and non-target (privileged)—and these identities are constantly at play in all of our interpersonal interactions with students, parents/caregivers, and other staff members. In exploring identity and intersectionality, participants learn how they can individually be a part of creating an equitable learning environment from their own unique standpoint.
     - Open to any individual or community member

3. Equity Intensive (12-hour workshop; 2 consecutive 6-hour workshops)
On the first day of this 2-day workshop participants will engage with the ‘Equity in Practice’ Guidelines, the ‘5 Co-Creating Equity Shifts,’ and explore their own identity and process of socialization because this is the basis of the work to ensure equity in any system. We are all a confluence of various identities—both target (marginalized) and non-target (privileged)—and these identities are constantly at play in all of our interpersonal interactions with students, parents/caregivers, and other staff members. In exploring identity and intersectionality, participants learn how they can individually be a part of creating an equitable learning environment from their own unique standpoint.

On the second day, participants will work together in teams to present, troubleshoot, and action plan around a specific equity challenge they are experiencing within their own school or district. Teams will be led through the ‘Collaborative Problem Solving for Equity’ process to create a unique action plan to meet the needs in their own context. Teams will be provided with resources and coaching from their peers and the TDC program team.
