Whiteness Accountability Group Summer Study Session

By Emily Meadows and Tamara Friedman
22-Jun-22
Whiteness Accountability Group Summer Study Session


Who We Are:

We are white international educators showing up to do the ongoing work of whiteness accountability as one piece of anti-racism progress. We challenge ourselves and each other to recognize and be accountable for whiteness in international schools, including individual, institutional, and systemic white privilege and power. 

Our Purpose:

We offer a space and facilitate a discussion for white international educators to do the work of whiteness accountability. We explore, unpack, process, interrogate, and engage in conversation on the various dynamics, beliefs, and thoughts that share our racialized experience as white members of the international school community. We challenge ourselves and each other to recognize and be accountable for whiteness in international schools, including individual, institutional, and systemic white privilege and power. 

Please register here to join us for our August 25 book/media study session.
