Event date: October 13, 2009
Scott Capron – Jeffco Pleasant View Elementary Principal
“Thank you Scott & Rob! This workshop was very helpful. Conversations went deep, attitudes changed and awareness was created around this topic.” That was a comment made by one workshop participant. Educators from around the state came together to learn, share and network. The morning focused on four Learning Goals:
Participants discussed their interpretations of common terms, such as “racism, colorblind, equity, anti-racism, white privilege”, etc. to seek common understanding. Scott & Rob shared helpful tools that participants could take back & use in their workplace. A Cultural Proficiency Continuum & The Five Elements of Cultural Competence were just two of those tools. “I think I can easily take the tools back and begin to develop awareness and engage in racial conversations with staff members and the community.” Participants had time to process information and network with each other.
Once again, thanks to Rob & Scott for a valuable morning of learning and networking!
