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 interrupt bias in your relationships with others, then you will need to cultivate interpersonal awareness so you can see what is needed, compassion so you want to try to meet the need, and relationship skills so that your efforts are effective. These are the components of the Social 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.
