We Wear Kicks to Work: Authenticity & Innovation in Professional Spaces

Tuesday, April 21 @ 5:00 pm EST

About this webinar

Wearing a pair of Jordans and rocking some Adidas are about more than what professionals wear to work. It's a methodology. It's about cultural responsiveness, remaining authentic and student-friendly, and building bridges to where students are located. The presenters will demonstrate strategies and share how connecting to innovative students through the lens of wearing sneakers can make educators more relatable, no matter their professional level. This program will provide the audience with some tangible strategies and insights on how to address issues in archaic spaces and how to keep students at the forefront of all that we do.
