Calling It Like It Is: Uncovering and Dismantling Racism in the Waldorf Movement was first presented by Sunbridge in September 2020. The need for this conference proved to be so widespread, and the event itself so well-received, it was repeated to new audiences that following January and March. Because interest in the topic remains high among many individuals who were unable to attend the conference last year, and because many teachers and administrators who did participate asked us for the opportunity to return to take up this work in greater depth, in 2021-22 we will be serving the needs of both groups: We are repeating the original conference (aka “Part I”) on this September 24-25 date (as well as on a second, TBA date later in the year), and will also be offering new, follow-up events (aka “Part II”) that will explore this DEI theme in more detail through a series of sessions with cohorts.  NOTE: Part II registration will be open only to those who have attended Part I. Information about these Part II events will be posted shortly.

Over the course of three one-and-a-half-hour sessions taking place virtually in real-time on Friday evening and Saturday morning and afternoon, this conference will:

  • Define and articulate the ways many Waldorf school curricula center whiteness and set it up as an ideal, to the detriment of all;

  • Use the frameworks of racial identity formation and biography work to better understand how we become who we are in a racialized society and how that impacts our engagement with the children in our care;

  • Share practical tools, resources, and success stories with the goal of dismantling racism in Waldorf schools and communities.

This conference will take place in live Zoom sessions. Sessions will not be recorded.
