Committee for Respect, Affirmation & Inclusion
Introduction to R.A.I.
The language of diversity work continues to transform, but R.A.I. transcends age, gender, and isms because we all need and deserve Respect, Affirmation and Inclusion. This approach is based on the philosophy that shifts occur when participants fully engage in taking personal responsibility and ownership for their contribution, presence, and influence on the community culture known as TVUSD.
I look forward to facilitating the discussion sessions with the R.A.I. Committee. Each session will provide opportunity to reflect on the Eight Habits of the Heart for Educators and how we apply R.A.I. to learning, working, and living within the TVUSD community.
