Limited Capacity seats available

There are many ways to understand family engagement and partnership. How does racial equity, implicit bias, organizational culture, policies and practice affect family engagement and leadership? This interactive workshop will explore these systemic barriers, as well as identify opportunities for families, schools and community collaboration through a dual capacity framework. We will probe the 4 main concepts identified in the framework, and explore implementation through the lens of the Seattle University Youth Initiative. Participants will learn and discuss practical ways to establish and sustain authentic partnership connections, and by the end of the session, will have at least three new tips, strategies or approaches they can immediately implement in their local district, school or community organization.
