We work with organizations to do in-person workshops that center around building both the foundational language to have brave conversations related to diversity and the relational trust as a team. We believe that consultations about diversity, equity, and inclusion for Montessori schools should come from a Montessori mindset as it is the true core of Montessori pedagogy to honor the full identity of each child and to prepare an environment that is just. Our workshops are deeply aligned to Montessori philosophy and support participants in their own individual work of dismantling inequity and embracing equity.

The Embracing Equity Workshop was well-structured and I loved the activities, which reinforced Montessori’s idea of activity and work. It made learning much easier and concrete, and gave us concrete examples of making these concepts work in the classroom.

We partner with Montessori Teacher Education programs for complete consultation services, including curriculum design, staff training, the development of strategic plans for organizational growth, accessibility to online learning tools, and equity coaching. While Montessori programs excel at teaching cosmic education and talk a lot about peace, most Teacher Education programs need more structured support when it comes to teaching a historical and genuine portrayal of justice. Our consultations with Montessori Teacher Education programs prioritize equity and access for the next generation of Montessori education.

There are many aspects of our culture that uphold white supremacy and continue to undermine all of us. Through Embracing Equity, I learned that I, as a teacher, am perpetuating systemic racism with the procedures I set up in my classroom. I now feel enlightened to set up classroom in ways that resist white supremacy culture. I feel empowered with information to keep me conscious of embracing equity with my learners.
