Engaging with Fear Webinar for Educators

Join us for an engaging workshop delving into the intricate relationship between fear and the pursuit of equity, diversity, and inclusion within our K-12 school communities.

We’ll delve into the discomfort and fear that often obstructs progress in this vital work, including the fear of change and the anxiety surrounding saying or doing the wrong thing. Through guided discussions and personal self-reflection, we’ll equip you with the tools to navigate these fears effectively.

  • The paramount importance of equity work, firmly grounded in the principles of the Ontario Human Rights Code

  • Exploring the Fear of Saying the Wrong Thing: Overcoming Communication Hurdles

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
