SEED Directors to Facilitate Workshop at Boston College's Diversity Challenge

SEED Co-director Emmy Howe and Associate Director Gail Cruise-Roberson will be facilitating a workshop at Boston College's 14th Annual Diversity Challenge: Racial or Ethnic Discrimination across the Lifespan this Friday, October 24, from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

The experiential workshop, on "Racial Literacy and Schooling," examines the importance of conducting racial dialogues with skill and sensitivity. It is based on the belief that racial literacy can be learned with study and practice, and those who practice racial literacy in schools can positively impact learning outcomes for all students. The structured activities in the workshop are part of a repertoire of skills used by SEED, which has been teaching diversity and facilitation to teachers, administrators, and parents for 28 years. Participants will share their own stories around race and explore methods for incorporating ongoing dialogues in their own groups, schools and institutions.
