A Dialogue with ESPs about Racial Justice in Education

This informational webinar helps participants develop a shared understanding of racial justice in education and strategies to engage in dialogue with colleagues and community on the topic.

At a Glance

How we talk about race and racial justice is very important. But it is equally important to bring ALL stakeholders to the table as we discuss and explore racial justice in education and the impact it has on students. Because Education Support Professionals (ESPs) represent 1/3 of any given school workforce and nearly 3/4 live in the school community in which they work, it is vital that ESPs are a part of the conversation about racial justice in education. ESPs know their students and with shared knowledge, they can have courageous conversations about racial justice and help lead the work on racial equity in their schools.
