For our first event, we are inviting Equity Team members, ELPS administration and teachers, Board of Education members and Parent Council reps to attend this workshop centered around 
the underlying principle that cultural competency is not simply a process of learning about “others,” but rather a lifelong journey that begins with learning about ourselves.

Participants will be exposed to a four levels framework to explore and understand issues of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels. Additionally, participants will engage in learning and dialogue about social justice concepts and educational best practices to help move themselves, their organizations, and their communities toward cultural proficiency and authentic and socially just change.
