WELLcome to the Well: Black Women as Re(Sisters) in Educational Spaces
Join us for a conversation about what it means to be a Black woman in education. As Black women, we are often in places in which we must resist the status quo. How are we equipping ourselves with tools for change while also centering our own needs?
Time & Location
Jun 03, 2020, 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM EDT
About the Event
Who is this session for?
- ANY Black woman in education. Women Pre-K through 12, in public schools, private schools, or educational organizations who identify as Black (including multi-racial women and Black women from all over the disapora).
What is this session about?
- As Black women in education, we are readily able to identify the inequities of the spaces in which we work, while also feeling the brunt of those inequities. How do we work to enact radical change in our organizations, while also centering our own needs?
What can I expect to take away from the session?
- Strategies for how to enact change in your organization
- Community-building with other Black women in education
What will be the format of the session?
- The Wells Collective (TWC) offers Discussion Sessions, which offer open space for dialogue and healing, and Workshop Sessions, which feature direct content presentation by TWC members. This session is a blend of both, with tangible strategies being offered as well as space for discussion. It will be facilitated by Dr. Shari Berga, Akailah Jenkins McIntyre, and Kalea Selmon.
We can't wait to see you there, girl! Shining in all your Black woman glory! ❤️
