About the Beyond Diversity I Seminars

The Beyond Diversity seminar, updated and aligned with Courageous Conversations About Race, 2nd Edition, is designed to help teachers, students, parents, and administrators understand the impact of race on student learning and investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing academic achievement disparities.

Participants will be introduced to the CCAR Protocol: the 4 Agreements, 6 Conditions, and the Compass and explore the use of the Protocol when engaging in courageous conversations centered around race and racism. Attendees will engage in a thoughtful, compassionate exploration of race and racism and grapple with how each influences the culture and climate of our schools; and practice using the CCAR Protocol for identifying and addressing policies, programs, and practices that negatively impact achievement for students of color and serve as barriers for ALL students receiving a world-class education.

Enrollment is an indication that you are poised for inquiry into your own personal investment in racism and desire greater accountability surrounding your professional leadership for racial equity.

**Although not required, participants are strongly encouraged to attend the Network's Equity and Social Justice Institute prior to Beyond Diversity I to build the necessary background for courageous conversations.
