We educate students about race, social issues and provide bias training to help students be more aware, inclusive and inspired to create equality. We also help schools reduce bullying, racial intolerances and student self segregation.
Students are curious, highs schools aren’t teaching students about it -
In America, social issues (such as islamophobia, racial rallies, women's rallies, police brutality allegations etc.) have been more prominent due to media. Students are curious about social issues and often, high schools are not equipped with the tools and diversity training to effectively educate students about these matters. Therefore, we educate students about these matters so they can understand how they can play a role in actively creating more equal and united social environments.
According to the US Board of Ed., most American schools are segregated due to economic status. Also, students in more ethnically diverse schools still self-segregate by statistically building communities and congregating with student of similar ethnic backgrounds. Through our programming we aim to reduce self-segregation, intolerances, create understanding and acceptance at a developmental age.
HIGH SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES
The #DOmore Assembly
Educate and inspire students to “DO more” by breaking out of their social comfort zones to build more diverse communities and prioritize creating equality for others.
The #HistoryAndNOW Assembly
Educate students about the history of inequalities and how it created our current social climate, issues and shaped the way we think of each other.
The #ShapeTheWorld Assembly
Kinesthetic learning opportunities for students to put what they’ve learned into practice in a fun, engaging, non confrontational and safe environment. This assembly will afford students the opportunity to collaborate with other students in creating solutions on how to shape an equitable world of unbiased work and educational opportunities for people of all races and genders.
WHY THE DIVERSITY ORG’S PROGRAM IS DESIGNED IN THIS MANNER:
Assembly 1 - Through social psychology students understand what they think about race and gender
Assembly 2 - Students learn the history of inequality in the United States, who created it, and why, when and where their previous understanding of race and gender was developed
Assembly 3 - Students learn how to apply their new knowledge and understanding of diversity to their everyday life and desired professions (through educational kinesthetic exercises).
OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
The Benefits of Diverse Communities - We educate students on the benefit of diversity so that they value and strive for inclusion.
Social Psychology - We teach students about social psychology so that they can understand their biases and how to break them to actively create more equality.
Statistics - We utilize statistics so that students understand that being unaware of these racial and gender equalities, creates conflicts and an imbalance of opportunities for underrepresented groups.
Illustrative and Relatable Stories - We use illustrative and relatable stories so that students understand how to implement these concepts into their future and everyday lives.
History - Students will obtain a historically accurate understanding of race and gender inequality, which will help them better understand the past (history) and how it has translated to our present.
Equip Them With Tools - We equip students with the tools necessary to move beyond racially and gender motivated behaviors, challenge their biases and help them actively prioritize creating equality.
