Have you been seeking a space for continued learning around equity and justice for individual and organizational change? If you answered yes, then our “Equity in EE” Learning Community may be for you!
In our continued efforts to explore authentic and meaningful transformation in the field of environmental education, we invite you to become part of our “Equity in EE Learning Community”. During the “Building the Foundation: Exploring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” course offered in June 2018 by the Center for Diversity and the Environment, participants identified the need for a confidential space for courageous conversations around inclusiveness, equity and justice, racism, and power dynamics in supporting individual and organizational change.
Meeting quarterly, our learning community will establish working agreements among all participants and will use a peer consultation model. We recognize that discussing equity and justice issues can sometimes be challenging and uncomfortable, but can lead to great growth when explored within a supportive community. We also acknowledge that people are in different places in their own journeys within this space, and that this is a process of lifelong learning and growth.
When and Where:
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 from 4-6 p.m. – “What could equitable EE look like and how do we get there” (Location: Green Jeans Farmery, 3600 Cutler Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM – look for us sitting outside either in the center by the fire pit or in the upstairs section of the Santa Fe Brewery)
We will explore the question “What could equitable EE look like?” and tools and steps to get us further along. There will also be time for peer to peer coaching to support questions around individual and organization growth!
