The NEXT Institute: An Experiential Approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
From Classroom to Community, Moving Toward Social Justice
The NEXT Institute is an intensive day of inspired learning, collaboration and networking, focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the core principles that drive our work with educators. The NEXT experience provides educators with new knowledge and skills to support development of classroom and school program practice and culture. We focus particularly on taking an experiential, community based approach to our DEI related work. Sessions are interactive and combine theory with practical application around issues of racial, economic, and gender justice ways that resonate with all learners.
During our day’s work we will make connections between social emotional learning, and integrating themes and content around social justice in lessons, units, and projects. learn more
