Broaching the Subjects of Race, Ethnicity and Culture in the School Context

Many independent schools have had to address racially-charged incidents without the benefit of training that would allow them to manage such incidents effectively. This multimedia presentation provides an empirically supported rationale and framework for broaching the contextual dimensions of race, ethnicity, and culture from an organizational development perspective. Participants will receive specific strategies to successfully navigate a variety of situations.
