the 6th “leading for social justice” Workshop (January 2020)
Why Social Justice Educator+Scholar+Activists are Needed in Leadership Roles, and How to Lead Anti-Oppressively in educational institution
12-13 January 2020
Los Angeles, CA
SUMMARY: What does it mean to lead for social justice, particularly in colleges of education? This 2-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 (but K-12 educators are welcome too!) 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. This workshop immediately precedes the January 2020 general meeting of Education Deans for Justice and Equity (www.educationdeans.org).
