Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Training

The Teaching Academy, in collaboration with the Offices of Diversity and Inclusion (KSAS/WSE), are pleased to offer again this September the highly valued, J.E.D.I Training Series!

“The opposite of racist isn’t ‘not racist.’ It is ‘anti-racist.’ ... One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an anti-racist. There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist’.” — Ibram X. Kendi 

In preparation for current and future teaching roles, this workshop series recognizes the importance of diversity and inclusion in teaching effectiveness. To have an equitable teaching environment for all students, instructors must commit to being anti-racist educators and actively combat power and privilege (e.g., racism, sexism, classism, etc.) in their classrooms. This workshop series encourages JHU Teaching Assistants and instructors to examine their intersectional identities, biases, assumptions, values, and expectations of students and center students of color and other marginalized groups in course design, pedagogy, and course content. Participants will develop concrete strategies on how to develop an inclusive teaching environment and how to function as an advocate in both subject matter and teaching methods. Participants will also have the opportunity to develop and receive feedback on their Diversity Statement - a document that is now more commonly requested as part of job applications, especially in higher education.
