Be About It: Unpacking White Privilege, Bias, and Anti-Racist Instruction

June 29 @ 10:00 am - July 1 @ 11:30 pm EDT

Join Teacher Talk Live and Get Your Teach On for a two-day virtual conference unpacking white privilege, bias, and anti-racist instruction

Be About It

Now is the time to have critical and courageous conversations. Now is the time to do the work.

Focusing our eyes, ears, heart, and mind toward anti-bias, anti-racist work is long overdue for so many. Now is the time to commit ourselves to not just learning about it but being about it. We must accept this opportunity for personal growth and sustained change – in our homes, our communities, and our schools. Join us in unpacking white privilege and setting our intentions for life-long anti-bias, anti-racist work. Join us in this conversation – and Be About It.

All attendees will receive a certificate from Get Your Teach On for 17 hours of professional development upon completion of the conference, and will be able to replay all sessions until August 1st.

100% of Get Your Teach On’s profits will be donated to The Harvard Diversity Project and South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness. More information about these organizations can be found below.

Supporting the Community

100% of Get Your Teach On’s profits from this conference will be donated to The Harvard Diversity Project and South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness.

The Harvard Diversity Project

A subsidiary of the Harvard Debate Council, Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project (HDCDP) is an Atlanta-based pipeline program that recruits, trains, and matriculates highly motivated black youth into a summer debate residency at Harvard College. HDCDP cultivates scholars seeking to further their education at elite colleges & universities. The end goal of the Harvard Diversity Project is to promote educational equity by creating opportunities for underserved youth to gain exposure and access to academic training that will distinguish them as top candidates in the college admissions process.

South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness

South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness (SCFS) is both a nonprofit and state agency and is the only dedicated comprehensive early childhood agency in South Carolina focused on getting children ready for school and life success. They serve more than 30,000 children in 81 school districts across 46 counties. South Carolina First Steps works collaboratively to ensure that all children start school ready to reach their highest potential with engaged support from their parents, caregivers, and communities. Our donation will be focused towards initiatives in Barnwell and Bamberg Counties, within South Carolina’s “corridor of shame”.
