Cohort-Based Learning

At Embracing Equity, some of the greatest results from our online course experiences are the human connections that are cultivated based on shared learning. In stark contrast to the typical online experience, we have live, real-time facilitation that supports each individual’s learning journey in an intimate cohort of about 10 people with two trained facilitators to guide the sessions.

Through this highly accessible and powerful platform, we are able to engage in real conversations to shift our behaviors and mindsets about systemic oppression, our role in dismantling it, and reimagine new ways of being in liberation and solidarity with one another.

WHY DO IT?

Embracing Equity online cohorts focus on the preparation of self. We believe that self-awareness in the context of racial structures, bias, blind spots, and a critical understanding of how racism in the United States has routinely created different outcomes for people of color is necessary to developing an anti-racist teaching identity. We believe that critical consciousness starts with developing personal racial identity narratives. We believe that having a supportive community makes this work sustainable and helps us stay true to the process, even when it gets hard.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Embracing Equity cohort-based learning programs are structured into five online sessions of 90 minutes each. All sessions take place on Zoom. This platform gives participants across the country access to Embracing Equity and to each other.
