"WHY SOCIAL JUSTICE EDUCATOR+SCHOLAR+ACTIVISTS ARE NEEDED IN LEADERSHIP ROLES, AND HOW TO LEAD ANTI-OPPRESSIVELY IN SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION"
What does it mean to lead for social justice, particularly in schools and colleges of education? This 4-day workshop is geared for new leaders and leaders-in-the-making in schools and colleges of education 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.
