Deep Dive into Racial Equity—Black History Month Celebration with Dr. Darnisa Amante

February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Network and Winchester Interfaith Council welcome Dr. Darnisa Amante as part of our 26th honoring of Black History Month.
The Jenks Center is a new venue for this celebration, which for 25 years was hosted by St Mary’s Peace and Justice Committee. Dr. Amante’s presentation, entitled DEEP Dive into Racial Equity: Our Individual and Institutional Challenge in 2019, will explore her work with The Disruptive Equity Education Project (DEEP), as well as include time to learn and grow from one another.
Dr. Amante is an educational and racial equity strategist who is deeply committed to the study of culture, innovation, and adult development. Since earning her master’s degree in Anthropology from Brandeis and her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Harvard, Dr. Amante has honed her knowledge of culture and adult development to transform organizational and school cultures on issues of equity, change management, and re-design. In addition to serving as President/Co-Founder of The Disruptive Equity Education Project (DEEP), she is a system level leadership lecturer at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.

This program is free and open to all. Contact the Network office for more information.

About the Disruptive Equity Education Project (DEEP)

The Disruptive Equity Education Project (DEEP) is a professional development and strategy organization that is focused on the intentional, developmental, and complex work that is associated with changing mindsets around equity and dismantling systemic oppression and racism.

As an organization, we believe that if the work of equity is not personal, intentional, and carefully planned then it will not be sustainable. To attain lasting results, DEEP engages leaders across school systems; students; parents; and organizations focused on equitable organizational change in transformative workshops. Our workshops challenge conceptions of inequity and reframe the task of achieving equity and racial equity. We build opportunities for individuals and teams to explore individual roles and team roles in dismantling inequity in their own communities.

Most importantly, the work that we do at DEEP is about bridging stronger connections to humanity; embracing the challenges of inequity with love and care; and offering key insights and strategic interventions to ensure that our work is sustained over time.
