The Time is Now: Building for Inclusive Excellence, Social Justice, and Community at SJC
Faculty/ Staff Session

This highly interactive virtual session will advance the notion of inclusive excellence as a guiding feature for our work with students, particularly during a time of racial trauma and considerable social unrest. The presentation will begin with a thoughtful exploration of the power of culture in shaping our thoughts and practices as well as in producing potential unconscious biases that can create barriers to learning for our students. Through concrete examples and experiential exercises, the presenter will model powerful educational practices that affirm students, incorporate their cultural backgrounds as tools for learning, and establish a healthy context for courageous conversations around social identity. Participants will gain a host of practical strategies for immediately implementation in their professional and personal lives. This session concludes with an exciting opportunity for faculty and staff members to share personally and celebrate one another as agents of positive change in this mission to best support our students in feeling valued and achieving their dreams!
