SEED: Poverty and Gender

A peer-led professional development program focused on building capacity for more equitable curriculum, schools, and communities. We will shine a light on inequities and find ways to mitigate practices that do not effectively serve all socio-economic backgrounds. The second half of semester two will examine gender inequities, the messages society sends about gender, and how these messages impact schools. Register at sourcewell.co/SEED
