Shifting the Power: Developing Personal Self-Awareness: Co-facilitated by Enrich Chicago and Chicago Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights.

Developing personal self-awareness involves gaining insight into your identity and how it positions you in society. It implies an understanding of your own cultural heritage and the potential effects your background can pose on your work with others. Ethnic and racial identity developments become especially important as educators prepare to work with diverse student populations. A better understanding of your own ethnic and racial identity helps to build personal self-awareness, which can ultimately support culturally inclusive practices.
