A Virtual Experiential Workshop Series for This Critical Time

Building inclusive learning environments has never been more important. We are living through a tumultuous time – from the COVID-19 pandemic to the groundswell of pain and activism around systemic racism. That is why the Mosaic Consulting Project is offering our Action Guide and accompanying virtual workshop series. This package will empower you with tools and curriculum to navigate interpersonal interactions and help you create a more equitable and inclusive learning community.

Castro Valley Unified School District’s Superintendent, Parvin Ahmadi, and Director of Educational Services, Nia Rashidchi share about their partnership with The Mosaic Project.

What to Expect

Our virtual interactive training series is made up of five 90-minute sessions:

Zoom meetingSession One

  • Break down the concepts of implicit bias, stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination.
  • Explore how racism and other forms of discrimination appear in your school and greater community.
  • Introduce “subtle acts of exclusion” (otherwise known as microaggressions) and the messages they send.

Session Two

Build communication skills to connect across differences and address discrimination, including:

  • Using the 3 Keys to Peace.
  • Avoiding the 3 Peace Blockers.
  • Assertive communication.

Session Three

  • Assertive conflict resolution.
  • Discuss and roleplay interrupting subtle and overt acts of exclusion.

Session Four

  • Rehearse receiving feedback around your own acts of exclusion.
  • Hands-on practice in addressing challenging scenarios.

Session Five

  • Overview of an anti-racist, pro-justice experiential education curriculum for elementary school students.
  • Overview of an anti-racist, pro-justice CIVICS experiential education curriculum for elementary school students.

Our Action Guide highlights key learnings from the series. It is designed to be a quick reference that can be consulted over and over again.
