We are collectively working towards returning to a new normal in schools, one that centers BIPOC students and families in both policies and practices. In this webinar, Sarah Diem and Anjalé Welton, authors of the new book Anti-Racist Educational Leadership and Policy will engage in conversation with the school leaders from Hazel Valley Elementary School, Casey Jeannot and Tamasha Emedi, to discuss what it looks like to both research and engage in anti-racist leadership practices, how they confront resistance, and their visions for the future.

In this series of conversations we'll explore what it means to develop systems that truly center justice and equity for each student and the communities served by our education systems. Leadership for Learning (L4L) is a doctoral program at the University of Washington made up of practicing educational leaders focused on realizing educational equity.  Principle in this endeavor is authentic engagement with students and families, shared vision and collective action, and high quality teaching and learning for students and educators. As part of our ongoing work to reimagine and realize more just school systems, we invite school leaders, community partners, and anyone interested in joining us in these collective endeavors.

In this course, participants will investigate how privilege and access intersects within the educational system through unsuspecting or intentional/unintentional behaviors. We will discuss how people use their privilege as a form of entitlement to gain access, popularly known as being a “Karen” or “Ken.” Participants will dissect and reflect on how this denies others access and perpetuates stereotypes, bias, and racism using historical structures, systems, and institutions to oppress. Together, we’ll develop skill in navigating spaces in more culturally responsive ways in order to begin dismantling structures that gate-keep marginalized or under-represented populations.
