in Higher Ed


Today I talk with Renee Wells about what it means to educate for equity through the lens of restorative justice. Renee is an educator and consultant with a grounding in the work of bell hooks and Paolo Freire, and I love how open and frank she is about all the things that we sometimes find hard to deal with…or to talk about…or to change…in our work on campuses.

I thought I’d share what reading this book is like for me because I think my experience as an educated white woman with leadership experience in higher ed will resonate with you.

Jayne Sommers is back! This time she shares her personal journey from understanding herself as a first-born Capricorn (achievement-oriented! controlling! always right!) to anti-racist educator, and how she came to see the ways she’s been socialized into our white supremacy culture. oin us for a month-long challenge Jayne will lead: White Women’s Work.
