Building Equitable and Just Schools for All

October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 14 @ 4:00 pm

An American politician once said, “The problem with our education system is not that parents do not have a choice. The problem is that inequities continue to exist.” This wise politician from the State of Hawaii is none other than Patsy Mink, a Japanese American and a member of Democratic Party, who is best known for authoring the Title IX Amendment of the Higher Education Act, which only established her goal of strengthening equal rights in the country.

Therefore, it is our goal is to move individuals and organizations toward philosophical and practical change in support of the concept of Ubuntu, equity, and multicultural education. We recognize that every person, school, and organization has different needs — that we’re in different places on the road toward truly acknowledging diversity and providing equity. So we do not begin with canned programs and presentations. Instead, we work with each individual organization (whether educational, community, governmental) to develop a deep understanding of your needs, then collaborate in the design of a relevant program. And we remain flexible during our workshops and presentations, continually assessing the needs and reactions of participants, ready to balance our initial approach with a group’s changing needs. We believe this is the most effective way to help move people and organizations forward.
