Be About It: Unpacking White Privilege, Bias, and Anti-Racist Instruction

Mon, Jun 29, 2020, 3:00 PM – Thu, Jul 2, 2020, 4:30 AM

Be About It

Now is the time to have critical and courageous conversations. Now is the time to do the work.

Focusing our eyes, ears, heart, and mind toward anti-bias, anti-racist work is long overdue for so many. Now is the time to commit ourselves to not just learning about it but being about it. We must accept this opportunity for personal growth and sustained change – in our homes, our communities, and our schools. Join us in unpacking white privilege and setting our intentions for life-long anti-bias, anti-racist work. Join us in this conversation – and Be About It.

All attendees will receive a certificate from Get Your Teach On for 17 hours of professional development upon completion of the conference, and will be able to replay all sessions until August 1st.

100% of Get Your Teach On’s profits will be donated to The Harvard Diversity Project and South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness. More information about these organizations can be found below.
