Whose Business is Belonging?

DEI Workshop for Business Officers


For: Business and HR Professionals




Wednesday, December 9, 2020; 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.


This past spring, independent schools, like other sectors of the U.S., have faced a reckoning with experiences of Black Americans and other minority groups on campus, who have expressed pain, anger, disappointment, and frustration with racist behavior. Consultant Jen Cort will share how Business Offices are a key part of school culture and the effort to address these circumstances at our schools is central to operations and caring about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Jen will expand on how we can listen and act using her model of 6 R’s:

Recognize; Receive; Reflect; Realize; Resist; Remember



Program Fee:

$50 per registrant, Member Schools

$75 per registrant, Non-Member Schools



Presenter:

Jen Cort's career blends her experience as a clinical social worker and educator. Her educational administrative experiences are as an Assistant Head of Lower School, Head of a Middle School, and senior administrator. Jen's therapy background includes serving as a counselor in Lower, Middle and Upper Schools as well as private practice. Jen went into consulting after seeing a need for supporting schools to live out their missions regarding diversity and inclusion such that students can be seen and heard while learning to be visible and use their voices in productive ways. Jen speaks at national conferences including NAIS, POCC, National Small Schools Conference, and Association of Middle Level Educators. She is published online and in journals including NAIS, Racing Toward Diversity, and Raising Race-Conscious Children. Jen works with schools around the United States and in Canada and is the host of a podcast, Third Space, providing diversity education by leading experts.
