1. The A.R.T. Project (Aboriginal and Racialized
Teachers for Leadership)
boards understand that they require a greater number of
teachers with Racialized and Aboriginal heritage to join
the administrative ranks of these institutions To that
end I have developed the A.R.T. project comprised of a
five module programme to support those teachers who self
identify as such with the goal of supporting, mentoring
and preparing them to become managers, consultants,
department heads and/or vice principals.
The programme will focus on concepts around Critical
Race Theory, Inclusive Mechanisms, The Burden of One's
Representation and the Challenge of Leadership and
Identity Politics. Cost TBD/Negotiated on case by case
The Canadian Race Relations Foundations "Foundations in
This 5 module programme (plus one on-line
component), supported and managed by the Canadian
Race Relations, is anchored in Critical Race Theory
and is designed for school board employees at all
levels of the organization. The course is an
intense immersion in equity based pedagogy, and it
challenges participants to think about how their
identities interact and impact with other people. (I
have facilitated 15 programmes over the past four
years to school boards across the GTA with rave
reviews. This past June a Principal from the Grand
Erie District School board stated, "that is was the
best course she had ever taken in her 22 year
career".) Programmes generally run once a week for
five weeks, but scheduling is flexible. (Includes
three guest lecturers and a certificate of
completion for each participant). Cost $8000.00.
3. Taking Equity to the Next Level:
This new programme has been developed specifically
for school board administrative teams (including
consultants and managers). The full day programme is
designed to sharpen administrators' equity lens in
order for them to better understand and navigate the
complex landscape of identities within their
teaching staff, support staff, parent/guardian
community and student population. It will cover such
1. Critical Race/Anti-Oppression Theory.
2. Deconstructing Identity Bias.
3. Intersectionality and Identity Politics.
4. The negation of the Racialized experience as
a form of oppression.
5. Equity and Organizational Change.
6. Understanding Privilege.
7. Gender Inequity and its impact on school
8. Gospel Values and Human Rights. (For Catholic
9. Inclusive Mechanisms and Practice.

specific staffing needs. Cost ranges from

Increasing your company's "Inclusion Quotient".

relations to name a few.
