Fostering Intentional Spaces of Belonging in our Schools and Workplaces
EDI + Belonging Task Force
"Belonging is a manifestation of deep connection." (Biss, 2019).
What are the barriers in our schools that impact belonging? How do we ensure our school’s culture and climate is one where our students feel a genuine sense of belonging? What are those inclusionary practices that can ensure we create that culture and climate of belonging within our schools?
In this workshop, we will examine these questions and provide additional tools to create a deeper sense of inclusion and belonging in our schools so that our students, staff, and colleagues can truly see themselves reflected in how we offer education and schooling.
