b'Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at GreenwoodAs Greenwood moves forward with its efforts to foster a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community, its important to us that we remain transparent and accountable to all members of that community. Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are an imperative of Greenwoods new Strategic Plan; we will continue to share our progress in this area and to provide opportunities for involvement and feedback from all community members.For more information on last years work in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, visit greenwoodcollege.org/DEI.Greenwoods overall goal for our 2021-2022 diversity, equity and inclusion work was to create a strong foundation from which to build in the future. We need to know ourselves and our identities before entering into deep diversity and community work. With that in mind, our focus in 2021-2022 was equipping students and staff with the introspective tools and practices they needed to better understand themselves. You cant do anything until you understand what you bring to the table, says Rachael Brownell-Swain, Director, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Outreach.Staff Professional DevelopmentRachael developed a five-phase professional development plan for all staff for the 2021-2022 school year. Year 1 of the plan focused on building a solid understanding of anti-racism and anti-oppression education; in the years to come, all staff will build upon that foundation to create positive and inclusive communities at the school. Phase 1 Self-Education (anti-racism, anti-oppression, social justice, current expectations, culturally responsive pedagogy, curriculum)Phase 2 Curriculum Gaps (developing units of study, making curriculum changes, examining course content)Phase 3 Avoiding Performativity (developing classroom and community cultures, developing allyship behaviours, avoiding performative allyship, authenticity in all spaces)Phase 4 Disrupting and Dismantling (positive intervention, redirecting, creating programming and policies) Phase 5 Critical Allyship and Planning for Change (What does critical allyship look like in your interactions?
