PM: PM: Finding a Common Ground – Diversity and Inclusion for students, faculty and staff Educational institutions receive Diversity scores throughout NYS – from incredibly diverse districts like the Schenectady City School District (rated by public school review with a .73 {chance students from two different races would be chosen at random}), to predominately white districts in our local area (rated at .04). For reference, the NYS average is .70. Due to this, we find ourselves as staff at upstate NY colleges and K-12 districts, for the most part, at predominately white schools. This makes it even more important that our students of color and students from marginalized backgrounds (minoritized religions, LGBTQ students) feel welcomed and included in our daily dialogues. This workshop will teach the skills needed to be more inclusive in dialogues with students, faculty, and staff from all races, religions, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations, while being intentional in creating space for these students in schools where they may be one of a few students who identify the way they do. Lunch on your own.
