Dr Helen Street: Improving our wellbeing by thriving interculturally and inclusively
In this online session, we will consider our own biases and prejudices and investigate how these influence our actions in an increasingly diverse world.
About the online event:
As school communities we are committed to all our members developing and enacting skills and dispositions that allow them to thrive in increasingly diverse and interconnected worlds. So how can we achieve this? What do we need to consider? What action can we take that will support our students, caregivers and staff?
Engage with Dr Helen Street as she investigates the importance of recognising and acknowledging our own bias and prejudice as a first step in our journey towards truly thriving emotionally, socially and academically.
