Reimagine Minnesota leadership is encouraging AMSD Superintendents to invite school board members and/or district leadership to the next Reimagine Minnesota Strategy Review Session. We believe this session will benefit many leaders in our schools including superintendents, board members, and district leaders. We are asking each Superintendent to limit their team to no more than 3 members. We will close the work session at 120 participants. The event will be held in the Grand Hall at the TIES/Sourcewell event center Monday, Feb. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This strategy session will focus on creating and sustaining consistent shared understanding of equity and high level of skill application for leaders at all levels. This workshop will be facilitated by Gordon Goodwin from the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE). Mr. Goodwin describes this workshop as an introduction to the role, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity.
The focus is on normalizing racial equity as a core value with clear definitions of key terminology, operationalizing racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organizing, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community.
Participants gain awareness of the history of race and of implicit and explicit bias and individual, institutional, and structural racism and how it impacts the workplace; gain skill at identifying and addressing institutional and structural racism; and increase capacity to advance racial equity. This workshop includes facilitated discussion, exercises and video.
