DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

Diversity, Equity, Inclusions, and Justice

Pearls of Wisdom
By Abenaa Uttenthal

Diversity, Equity, Inclusions, and Justice


For over 30 years international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences.  Each day of every program begins with a 'pearl of wisdom,' a 'nugget of knowledge,' or a 'gem of inspiration' from one of the participants.  We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In this Pearl, Abenaa Uttenthal explores the Adinkra framework from her Ghanian heritage to focus on the word sankofa which means, "go back and fetch"; essentially reflecting on the mistakes of the past to move forward in the future.
