CECH Common Read

The CECH DEI Board would like to invite all board members to participate in a DEI Pilot Learning Community as part of phase one of the CECH Common Read initiative. As of now, we will have three meetings: one in June, July, and August. At each meeting we will discuss several chapters of the book When Getting Along Is Not Enough by Dr. Maureen Walker with reflection questions from the book and outside resources. Meetings will last about an hour. 

Please reply to Andrea Buenano or Carrie Biales if you are interested in being a part of this Pilot Learning Community. Please let us know if you need any help getting a book if you have not already done so. We look forward to being a part of this exciting project!
