Webinar: A Toolkit for Understanding Local Issues in Global Context, Including Racism and Structural Inequality – Aug 11

Posted by PHENND on July 28, 2020

The Community-based Global Learning Collaborative, the Pennsylvania Council for International Education, and the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development are cooperating to support a series of fall events designed to deepen understanding of local inclusivity and its relationship with global processes and understanding. Join us for these free, discursive webinars.

August 11, 1 – 2:15 EST: A Toolkit for Understanding Local Issues in Global Context, Including Racism and Structural Inequality – Presenter / Facilitators: Nicole Stokes – Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, St. Joseph’s University; Eric Hartman – Executive Director of the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, Haverford College

Beginning with a focus on how to live and practice racial equity everyday, Dr. Nicole Stokes and Dr. Eric Hartman will share a set of resources designed to expand local understanding of global injustices, and ways to foster classroom discussions and dialogues about inequality and racial discrimination. The goal is not for educators to become experts in diversity and inclusion but rather how to create spaces and opportunities that do not shut down these conversations in the classroom or in schools (broadly). The resource sharing and discussion will span everyday interactions to consideration and understanding of structural and historical injustices. Educators who take part will be exposed to resources that can help advance their own practices and curriculum, specifically in respect to understanding structural inequities in local context.

This webinar is relevant for educators at the advanced secondary, undergraduate, and graduate levels who are facilitating sophisticated introductory conversations at the intersection of large concepts and structures and local, personal applications.
