Event Overview
Join us for an inspired evening with the founder of the Culturally Responsive School Leadership Institute (and author of the book, Culturally Responsive School Leadership), Dr. Muhammad Khalifa. In this inaugural EQUITYx experience, Dr. Khalifa will share his talk, "The Missing Component of School Reform: Culturally Responsive School leadership." Through this talk, Dr. Khalifa will address: issues of equity vs. dehumanization; the historicization of school reform; and how to embrace criticality by moving toward asset-based reforms. The talk will be followed by a facilitated interview, audience Q & A, and digital downloads that will help you begin envisioning school reform through CRSL in your setting. Be a part of this exciting kickoff to our new EQUITYx series!
