leading for social justice Workshop (August 2019)
"Why Social Justice Educator+Scholar+Activists are Needed in Leadership Roles, and How to Lead Anti-Oppressively in educational institutions"
August 31 - September 2, 2019
SUMMARY: What does it mean to lead for social justice, particularly in colleges of education? This 3-day workshop is geared for new leaders and leaders-in-the-making in educational institutions and organizations who are starting or seeking institutional positions (dean, associate dean, chair, director), positions in professional associations (president, board member), or informal roles (mentor, organizer), and especially encourages participation by faculty and staff in higher education who are already immersed in social justice work and/or who are members of underrepresented groups. As educator-scholar-activists, we will explore the impact that is possible when viewing leadership as integral to movement building. Participants will learn conceptual frameworks and concrete strategies from accomplished leader Dr. Kevin Kumashiro, who has served as school of education dean, department chair, research center director, grant primary investigator, national association president, community organization board president, and founder of several networks. Several registration options are available.

VENUE LOCATION, ACCESSIBILITY, AND PARKING: To make this workshop intimate and affordable, we are convening in a spacious and charming meeting room in a residential neighborhood just north of Oakland. Wifi is available; no stairs are required. The venue is 14 miles from the Oakland Airport, and 23 miles from the San Francisco Airport, and can be reached easily by public transportation (BART and then a free bus that drops you off a block away). If you drive, ample free garage parking is available, as is free street parking. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the venue.
WHAT TO BRING: The workshop will be as “green” as possible, so no handouts should be expected. Participants should bring a laptop or writing supplies to take notes during the sessions, as well as anything to make the experience more enjoyable and comfortable (preferred snacks, headphones, etc.). Valuables should be left at home, and the organizers and property owners are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal property.
LODGING: Participants will need to arrange their own lodging. Several nice hotels are within a mile (15-20 minute walk) from the workshop venue, and are currently listed on travel websites at less than $200/night (search for hotels in Emeryville, and choose from the group of hotels near the intersection of Powell and Shellmound).
