The 2022–2023 Equity & Inclusion Virtual Speaker Series begins Oct. 19 with author and educator Tiffany Jewell. Jewell will present “The Anti-Racist Kid: Identity, Justice, and Activism” via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Using a framework similar to “This Book Is Anti-Racist,” learn how to take action and work towards creating anti-bias anti-racist classrooms, libraries, schools, and community spaces. Listeners will grow into their awareness and start to make a plan on how to support their own growth and that of those they are working with. Learn how to authentically center the voices of those who are too often silenced, ignored, and left out of history in our own spaces. Build an inclusive anti-bias antiracist community that empowers all who enter.
The Equity and Inclusion Virtual Speaker Series is a program led by a number of independent schools to offer our communities and beyond the opportunity to connect, learn, and engage in topics around equity, inclusion, and antiracist education and action. The program invites speakers throughout the academic year to create access to recognized authors and speakers that engage participants in complex topics through dialogue and cross-cultural communication.

The speaker series is sponsored by various independent schools in NWAIS, but aims to serve a public purpose by making this programming free and accessible to non-NWAIS schools and communities.
