The Institute for Teaching Diversity and Social Justice is an experiential professional development program open to individuals interested in building more inclusive and affirming classrooms through exploration and development of strategies and skills to effectively navigate diversity issues in independent schools. Anti-bias work provides educators a way to examine and transform their understanding of children’s lives, and also do self-reflective work to understand their own lives more deeply.

The Institute is designed to support educators of all types in their development of racial proficiency, culturally aware pedagogy and intersectionality – the theory of how different types of discrimination interact. With facilitation and presentation by Dr. Khyati Joshi, participants will learn to address such critical issues as implicit bias, privilege, and manifestations of prejudice at several levels: interpersonally, culturally, and institutionally. By exploring these issues within the context of multiple social identities, attendees will be better equipped to raise their own self-awareness and the awareness of their students’ experiences; knowledge that is critical for effective conflict resolution.
Participants will receive research-based tools and practically-useful resources to increase their capacity to implement anti-bias curriculum and strategies for change within their classroom and school environments.
