Diversity Workshop: Identifying Racism and Cultural Proficiency


Participants are in for an engaging, challenging and supportive journey as we work together to cultivate a stronger awareness of our own racial socialization, how it impacts the way we view the world and what we can do to challenge those mental models. Using our life experiences and professional resources, we will investigate personal and institutional racism and create tools and strategies we can use that challenge racism within our school system and community. This workshop is sponsored by Truman’s Department of Education.

9am — 3 pm (lunch on your own)
Alumni Room, Student Union Building, Truman State University
Guest Speakers: Ben McCallister, Second Grade Teacher, Clayton School District, and Paya Rhodes Sample, Fourth Grade Teacher, Clayton School District (Truman MAE alumna)
