There is growing consensus about the pervasiveness of systemic racism in America and the need for people of all racial backgrounds to deeply engage in dismantling it. There are predictable barriers for White people -- and in our case, White educators -- as they consider committing to this challenging and courageous work. This session investigates what we as educational developers can do to help White instructors develop as anti-racist educators. Participants will explore a community of practice model that our institution has adapted from several leading racial justice initiatives and we will discuss the impact of this program and its continued evolution.

NOTE: While the content of this session is focused on working with White instructors, the session itself is intended for educational developers of all racial and ethnic identities who are interested in doing this work.
