We are living in a time when we must confront the issues of equity, social justice, diversity, race and racism in schools. The necessary work and change needed to address these deep-rooted challenges, playing themselves out every day across the state, begins with each of us. What doesn’t challenge you, can’t change you! At the heart of this edWeb podcast is the conviction that civic responsibility and ethical citizenship are fundamental competencies that every learner must develop—and all schools and districts must model and reinforce.
Listen to Michigan’s MASA leaders of SDEI (Social Justice through Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) to hear more about their work, their journey, and their plans for an 18-month collaborative to build a better, equitable education system for all students. Their collaborative focuses on real issues, lived experiences, district transformation, and student voice and activism. Presenters include Dr. Sarena Shivers, Deputy Executive Director, Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators, Dr. Shayla Griffin, Co-Founder & Facilitator of the Justice Leaders Collaborative, and Dr. Brian Davis, Superintendent, Holland Public Schools, Holland, Michigan.
This edWeb podcast provides strategies, examples, and recommendations for educational leaders engaged in the work of addressing the needs of diverse student populations, promoting students’ success in post-secondary education and the 21st century world of work, and creating and sustaining an inclusive organizational culture free of implicit bias and structural racism.
This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
