Special Webinar: Critical Race Theory

Wednesday, September 29
12 noon – 1:00 p.m.

What is Critical Race Theory (CRT)? What is the misconception about CRT? Why is there so much resistance to it being taught in schools? What do school leaders need to know about CRT? How does CRT relate to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion?  

Join our special guests, Dr. Shayla Griffin and Dr. Serena Shivers, to sort out what has become a very challenging topic across the state and country: How do we continue to do the important work of social justice and equity, while defueling this hot topic and ongoing debate? Participants will have a better understanding of what CRT is and what it is not, along with a few resources and tools to take back to their school district.

Dr. Griffin and Dr. Shivers have been providing this presentation across the country.  

Dr. Griffin is the co-founder and facilitator of Justice Leaders Collaborative, the Education Justice Consultant for the Washtenaw Intermediate School District in Michigan, author of Those Kids, Our Schools: Race and Reform in an American High School (Harvard Education Press (2015), and co-author of Race Dialogues: A Facilitator’s Guide to Tackling the Elephant in the Classroom (Teachers College Press, 2019).  Dr. Sarena Shivers, a former superintendent, now serves as Deputy Executive Director at Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators.  She has been an external reviewer for AdvancED national accreditation institution, a national consultant for The College Board in their College Readiness Division, a “Data Teams” trainer and trained to be a restorative practices facilitator, and a teacher of graduate level courses in culturally responsive teaching.
