About Module II

Module II introduces each participant to ten professional learning pursuits designed to embrace a new mindset connected to cultural relevancy while focusing on personal and professional growth. These ten pursuits will challenge the participants with new language and resources needed to foster an anti-racism approach to education with a focus on equity.

From Cultural Humility to Future Orientation, we believe these new approaches within the educational construct will enrich the lives of students, teachers, and parents. With a focus on equity, we begin to embrace a new way of thought that embraces all cultures and their differences while meeting students where they are.

“By recognizing the failures of the past, researchers, clinicians, providers, and advocates can all contribute to building a better future that is founded in practices of cultural humility.”
Hogg Foundation for Mental Health
