Supporting the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Field


Race Talk is Dividing Us! And Other Myths About Race

Join us on September 28, 2021 from 7-8:00PM ET on Zoom. This workshop will help parents and guardians learn accurate definitions of Racial Literacy and CRT (dispelling distortions and inaccuracies) as well as provide an overview of how Racial Literacy can be integrated into a curriculum to promote equity and belonging for all.

Roundtable Discussion with Teen Pollyanna

Please join us on September 29 from 7-8:00PM ET on Zoom for an engaging roundtable with members of Teen Pollyanna, a leadership development group for students already working to dismantle racism by advocating for inclusive and equitable school environments. Students will be sharing their first-hand experiences in the current academic setting, why they are passionate about DEI, how young people can — and are — leading in this space, and how other students can get involved to lead change at their schools and beyond. 

Being Intentional about Building Lifelong Readers

Join us on October 9, 1-4PM ET on Zoom. Jason Craige Harris will guide you through an interactive Pollyanna Racial Literacy Curriculum workshop, which is designed to help students gain knowledge about race as it has been constructed in the United States.

Overview of Pollyanna's K-8 Racial Literacy Curriculum

Join us on October 16, 1-2:30PM ET on Zoom. Through exploration of the historical literary canon, our own reading journeys, and the journeys of our children, we will have an opportunity to unpack our relationship with the concept and begin the process of building authentically diverse libraries. 

Beyond Black@ - Developing an Effective Communications/DEIB Partnership
