Creating Culturally Affirming Spaces: A Systems Orientation
Join REL West for the second webinar in a two-part series designed to expand knowledge on how culturally responsive strategies can be used to support academic and social and emotional development and to present systemic leadership approaches and strategies for implementing culturally affirming environments.
Learn about what culturally affirming schools and school systems look and feel like and how to create evidence-based, systemic, sustainable changes that center and respect the identities of culturally, linguistically, and racially diverse students. Researchers and practitioners with real-world knowledge will share their expertise and insights.
Wednesday, October 27, 10am-12pm Pacific / 1pm-3pm Eastern
In this webinar, district and site leaders will:
- Deepen understanding of culturally affirming school and classroom cultures and climates and how they shape student and staff outcomes
- Explore systemic approaches for embedding culturally affirming spaces and practices at the school and district level
- Learn about promising leadership practices and adult behaviors that foster culturally affirmative schooling experiences from practitioners in the field
