Cultural proficiency and equity are sensitive and complex subjects, and depth of content
knowledge and skillful facilitation are essential. For those who have already completed the
3 day courses “Culturally Proficient Leadership” or “Unpacking Cultural Proficiency” (or similar
coursework), we are offering this 3 day “Deep Dive” into the subject. Participants in Deep Dive will
develop advanced knowledge and skills in equity/anti-bias content, difficult conversations, and action
planning for next steps in your school.

Curriculum Content:

The Deep Dive class will include skills and concepts such as:
  • Understanding and application of the cultural proficiency model and the barriers to cultural proficiency - lack of awareness, oppression, and privilege (Lindsey, et al) 
  • Additional content regarding equity and cultural proficiency in schools 
  • Techniques to skillfully conduct and process equity activities and conversations (i.e. difficult conversations, managing resistance, etc). 
  • Self-reflection regarding personal experiences, biases, assumptions, etc.
