“The Leading for Social Justice workshop was wonderful. Kevin provided spaces for us to think deeply, to talk, to listen and to create. Approaching challenging problems from many directions was incredibly useful for me, as were the strategies and frames he shared along the way. I left the workshop feeling energized to get to work, but also calm and hopeful about that work. And I woke up the next morning inspired to write my way through some difficult problems, for the first time in several months. I really could not have asked for anything more from this experience.” - Anne-Marie Deitering, Professor and Associate University Librarian, Oregon State University Libraries & Press

"Dr. Kumashiro offered powerful lenses to re-frame the ways I think about leadership and social justice in higher education. I gained new perspectives on my work, which helped me to develop an action plan that is meaningful to me and relevant to the communities in which I work. As a bonus, it was wonderful to be able to meet other leaders in higher ed and learn of their work and experiences. All in all, the workshop is something that will provide long-lasting energy and support for my work." - Kira J. Baker-Doyle, Associate Professor and Program Director, School of Education, Arcadia University

"Attending Kevin’s Leading for Social Justice workshop was truly a meaningful and memorable experience! Kevin is a gifted facilitator and led our group through conversations about social justice and leadership that resonated on a personal and organizational level. As an academic leader, teacher and scholar, I left the workshop with many practical take-aways and much food for further thought. Thank you, Kevin!" - Beth Brennan, Associate Dean, Graduate School of Education, California Lutheran University

"The workshop gave me numerous frameworks for thinking about how I can be a leader focused on equity and justice, but also practical ways to make positive change within my institution. The workshop not only helps you understand the way that university leadership has traditionally worked, but also how we can leverage our leadership positions to support social justice movements inside and outside our schools of education." - Christopher Martell, Assistant Professor and Program Director, School of Education, Boston University

"The Leading for Social Justice Workshop was a welcomed opportunity to problematize traditional notions of leadership and to think deeply about how to mobilize leadership for justice and movement building. Kevin Kumashiro’s ability to share thoughtful and nuanced perspectives on educational leadership (in a range of educational settings), to situate approaches to leadership in a larger socio-political and historical context, and to make space for dialogue about the micro- and macro-political challenges of leadership resulted in a comprehensive learning experience. If you are looking to redefine leadership or redefine yourself as a leader in higher educaiton, K-12 education or community contexts, this workshop is a must!" - Vidya Shah, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Education, York University, Canada
