The Why-What-How of Equity & Inclusivity Presented by Commission on Diversity and Inclusivity Co-Chairs Dr. Luvelle Brown, Superintendent, Ithaca City Schools, and Dr. L. Oliver Robinson, Superintendent, Shenendehowa Central School District Eliminating the Stereotype Threat through Belonging Presented by John Krownapple Without belonging, access can be harmful. Why? When uncertain of whether or not they belong, students are vulnerable to the stereotype threat-a social-psychological phenomena, which results in significant underperformance. Anything less than unconditional belonging also leads to many other unhealthy outcomes. Thus, belonging must be our priority if our schools are to provide the conditions within which all students can thrive. How do we do that? By shaping a culture of dignity. In this session, receive a proven framework for eliminating the stereotype threat through belonging and dignity. Navigating Challenging Conversations Presented by Dr. CarolAnn Daniel Engaging in challenging conversations about race, privilege, equity and other social justice issues is a necessary part of the work of DEI. However, many people find these conversations both emotionally and politically challenging. So, how do you craft the right message and engage with others to achieve your desired results? This session offers an introduction to understanding the skills, qualities, and strategies necessary to facilitate more productive conversations. Best practices for building trust and developing more authentic relationships across differences will also be explored.
