SESSION 2: January 24, 2024 | 2:30pm - 5:30pm
ABOUT THIS ONLINE SERIES
As supervisors, our role is to support, edify, and manage our teams in ways that align with our organizational values. Our teams are increasingly more diverse in identity, increasing our need to ensure we cultivate a space where everyone can thrive. In this series, participants will develop practices that support personal, professional, and organizational goals for staff development that are unique to their schools (e.g. self-reflection, examining power and influence, and/or organizational culture assessment). Participants will apply equity-based leadership, management, and decision-making theories to build management and supervision strategies. These strategies will support their engagement with diverse teams using pre-session surveys, case studies, and work time within the program to build a unique management toolkit.
If you attended CATDC’s May program, Practicing Equity as a Supervisor, you will have the opportunity to go deeper into the practices and theories shared, as well as time to cultivate a toolkit that will support your unique management or supervisory experience.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe how they can use equity-based leadership theories in staff development that are unique to their roles and teams
- Explain and create an actionable roadmap for how forms of power can be used to empower staff and colleagues
- Employ one strategy to support organizational change

This virtual series is ideal for any educator, administrator, or staff member with a supervision role in schools. Please consider attending with a team from your school!
CATDC is offering a coaching component for individuals or teams from our member schools to deepen their experiences in this program series.
