Valda Valbrun and Mary-Frances Winters will share best practice strategies for building culturally proficient leadership to address issues of equity, diversity and inclusion district-wide. We will discuss the leadership imperative to solve equity challenges by dismantling deficit models, exploring inequitable practices and policies, developing cultural self-awareness and using leadership strategies that support inclusive environments and lead to improved student outcomes.
Participants will learn ways to respond to the diversity of school and district populations, leverage the diversity and welcome ethnically and culturally diverse communities. Participants will also have an opportunity to hear directly from a panel of Charlotte Mecklenburg district and school leaders who will share how they have applied the learning to advance the district’s cultural proficiency initiatives.
