If you watched the Academy Awards, you heard Taika Waititi's land acknowledgement for the Tongva, Tataviam, and Chumash. At Brooks School, we live and learn on land once inhabited by the Pennacook people and we acknowledge their enduring presence. We believe land acknowledgement keeps schools in touch with the past and committed to thoughtful, ongoing stewardship for the future. Join this session to learn how your school can research, write, and integrate an acknowledgement of first peoples.

This presentation will summarize the facts and current posture of two Title IX actions and their impact on independent secondary schools, both on and off the athletic field. We will also discuss more generally the issue of transgender athletic participation and the impact on our schools, our athletic leagues and the intersection with equity, fairness and compliance with state and federal law.

Participants will learn how Dublin School moved to a system based in restorative justice and will have opportunities to consider how restorative models might work in their institutions. C.O.R.E. (Community Organizations Responsible for Educational Equity) is Dublin’s restorative justice group comprised of six student organizations; its goal is to build a more just, responsible community and understands that (1) violations of community values cause harm, (2) justice should focus on repairing that harm, and (3) community members affected by the violation should be welcome to participate in its resolution.

What is the experience of whiteness in a time of inclusivity and social change? Many white people do not identify as "white," which can lead to considerable defensiveness, uncertainty, and misunderstanding when schools emphasis diversity. In an informal, nonjudgmental manner, we will explore how "whiteness" fits into personal identity and the kinds of anxieties and opportunities that multiculturalism presents for white faculty.

This presentation coalesces the lived experiences shared by a 2019 PoCC panel of boarding school faculty of color that I chaired, who shared a pragmatic lens of being Black and Brown, and living and working in a boarding school. While Boarding schools have ameliorated their efforts to extend citizenship to faculty of color, I offer a unique lens into what faculty of color wrestle with as they lack agency and critical mass for institutional growth.
