Creating Culturally Affirming Spaces Webinar Series

In this two-part series, presenters and practitioners discussed the practical knowledge and leadership skills necessary to begin creating culturally affirming spaces to make schools more safe and supportive environments for culturally, linguistically, and gender-diverse students.

The first webinar expanded knowledge and provided practical, evidence-based examples of systems, policies, and practices that are culturally affirming—what they are and what they are not—to inform instruction, school climate-related practices, and everyday decisions that shape the academic and social-emotional well-being of students and their families.

The second webinar expanded on how culturally responsive strategies can be used to support academic and social and emotional development, and participants learned about evidence-based systemic leadership approaches and strategies for implementing culturally affirming environments.
