Speaking Topics
  • Becoming More Inclusive Educators

    This workshop will present basic theory and simple changes educators can make to create a more inclusive learning environment in their classrooms, departments, units, and schools. We will examine the dynamics in the immediate context, and identify structural obstacles. We will explore how to create settings for inclusive dialogue, where all participants feel not only included but valued. Concrete tools and strategies will be provided.

  • Becoming More Inclusive Leaders

    This workshop examines the leading theories and models of inclusive leadership, what successful inclusive leadership looks like, and concrete strategies and tools for leaders to further their knowledge, practices, communications, and visions of inclusion, including managing and preempting conflict and fostering civil dialogue. Specific issues and incidents can be addressed.

  • Cultural Responsiveness and Humility

    How do we as individuals progress through the various stages of personal and professional development to become more culturally responsive? Why are humility and emotional intelligence essential? What tools and strategies do we need? And how can this be applied to make concrete change? We will examine methods of analyzing self and organizations to build more inclusive and equitable environments and communities.

  • From White Privilege to White Supremacy

    Are white privilege and white supremacy the same thing? How do we conceptualize the relationship between the two? This presentation will help us understand the difference between the two, and present a model for understanding this relationship and the different forms it has taken at different points in time. We will examine the organized white supremacist movement (Klan, Neo-Nazis, etc), and the changes it has undergone.

  • Identifying Our Privilege

    There is a widespread misunderstanding of what the term “privilege” means, and it is often assumed to be divisive. On the contrary, this activity breaks down us vs. them dynamics and brings everyone together based on our lived reality, where each one of us benefits from some form of privilege (gender, race, sexuality, religion, disability, age, citizenship). This will involve greater self-reflection and examines the ways that each one of us contributes to reproducing inequitable relationships and organizations, often unconsciously. This activity is designed to create a deep awareness of how advantages and disadvantages operate in everyone’slives. The activity experience and debrief is designed to support open dialogue where individuals feel comfortable sharing their own feelings, insights, and experiences, at a deeper level than they likely have in the past. The activity connects participants through the power of storytelling, humanizing everyone in the room, and emphasizes that everyone’s voices matter. We examine the reality that everyone benefits from some form of privilege, but not in the same way or to the same degree. Nevertheless, everyone is brought together to consider how we can leverage our privilege for change, understanding the different but shared work we need to do.
