Most of us have some awareness of biases that negatively impact us as well as others in our school communities. How can our communities get better and become more inclusive and equitable? Disruption is not enough. We also need to cultivate the attitudes, skills, and actions that foster equity and inclusion. In this session, you will be introduced to a framework for DEI work that emphasizes disruption and cultivation at three levels - Personal/Internal, Social/Interpersonal, and System/Institutional. For example, if you want to make progress with your own internal biases, then you will need to cultivate self-awareness so you can see, self-compassion so you can bear to see, and self-regulation so you can stay with what you see and move through it. These are the components of the Personal Domain of the SEE Learning Framework and will be the focus of the experiential activities in this session. The session will also include an overview of the other two domains and make the case that this lens is critical for DEI work in our schools. Participants may choose to attend only the morning session, only the afternoon session, or both sessions.
