February 17-18, 2017: Community, business and parent leaders participated in a two-day workshop at GEA led by Monica Walker, GCS Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Eric Hines, GCS Director of Diversity and Inclusion and Dr. Bay Love of the Race Equity Institute. Facilitators walked participants through history, data and discussion to explore and unpack what structural racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. The workshop strategically examined how the accumulated impact of racism has resulted in pervasive disproportional and disparate outcomes for children of color in the educational system.
