The goal of this three-part series is to help people manage difficult conversations in spaces with school-aged children in relation to the current cultural moment (e.g. conversations about race and equity in schools and Covid protocols). Led by Jessica Hochman and Tonya Leslie of We Need 2 Talk, each webinar introduces Epoch Education’s RIR Protocol (Recognize, Interrupt, Repair): a tool for managing difficult conversations.
In this session, the second in the three-part series, the presenters set a historical context for conversations around equity. America has always had to fight for racial equity, but today’s battle has a different tone. In this webinar they discuss how conversations about equity and Critical Race Theory have made their way into mainstream conversations. Using the RIR protocol, they demonstrate ways for participants to manage these conversations.
