A Virtual Experience

Achieving Equity by Addressing Systemic Beliefs

You can enter the online platform for this event HERE!

NOTE: Passwords for events will be sent via email to all registered INM attendees each morning of the meeting.


Join WestEd equity leaders in this session designed to explore the underlying belief systems that drive our systems’ policies, procedures, and practices and identify strategies to move from an orientation of “fixing students” to one focused on “fixing systems.” Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own beliefs as well as how those beliefs impact their approach to systems improvement. Topics that will be addressed include color evasiveness versus color consciousness, root causes of systemic inequities, and culturally responsive and sustaining education. As a result of this session, participants will:

  • Develop an understanding of the role that systemic beliefs play in disrupting racial inequities
  • Identify ways to leverage belief work as central when developing policies and practices, and supporting your institution in aiming to shift inequitable outcomes and experiences
  • Build awareness of the core tensions that educators experience when addressing racial inequities

NOTE: The maximum capacity for this workshop will be capped at 40 participants. The first 40 attendees to enter the waiting room will be admitted to the session.
