Foster Equity and Create Inclusive Learning Environments
The Transformational Leadership Institute is an offering of virtual, accredited* trainings on antiracism, unconscious bias, learning loss, and ways that COVID-19 has exposed and exacerbated the issues. The institute, sponsored by Kendall Hunt, will take place on July 1, July8, and July 13, 2021. Tailored for K–12 leaders and educators, the virtual sessions will equip participants to design individualized equity plans. The sessions will be led by diversity experts Houston Barber, President for the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents, and Aaron Thompson, nationally recognized speaker and leader in higher education. They will offer insights on recognizing and countering inequity, racism, and learning loss with time-oriented strategies that increase school diversity and cultivate inclusive learning environments.
* EILA credit is offered in the state of Kentucky. The training may be accepted as professional development credit/hours in other states as well.
