9. Tangible Development: Building a Culture of Accountability to Equity and Inclusion: The fundamentals of calling in and calling out in the workplace.

Program: School Improvement

Audience: K-6 Spcl Ed/SPARC, 7-12 Spcl Ed, Alt Ed, IDT, CTE, Admin, Related Services, TA, Aides, Nurses

Dates: 10/7/2022

Meeting Times: 9:00 am-11:55 am

Starting Soon
Scholar and author Dr. Loretta Ross writes that the difference between calling out and calling in is that calling in requires us to see accountability and feedback as, "A call in is actually a callout done with love and respect. Because you're really seeking to hold people accountable for the potential harm that they cause, but you're not going to lose sight of the fact that you're talking to another human being.” The current social landscape is fraught with partisanship, deep divides on issues of equity, and an underdeveloped ability to listen and communicate across differences. This session will outline the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to understand each other more effectively and communicate across lines of identity and lived experience. The ultimate goal is to gain a deeper understanding and ability to grow as colleagues in the professional context using real-life examples of conflicts in the workplace. In addition to the fundamentals on dialogue and accountability, each participant will develop an action plan to integrate these skills into their daily work life. Learning Outcomes ● Develop a common understanding and differentiation between diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and anti-racism language and practices ● Explore the impacts of culture, socialization and identity on accountability ● Examine theoretical and practical approaches and frameworks that facilitate a culture of accountability to diversity, equity, and inclusion Sullivan County BOCES' component district - $30 pp. All other districts, $50 pp.
