Walking the Talk

As educators, parents, students, and community members, how do we engage difference and work toward inclusion — while respecting other people’s perspectives and opinions? How do we walk in someone else’s shoes as a way to understand them? (And how do we do this for real, in our real contexts, not just in an idealized world?)

Walking the Talk

Walking the Talk, a new video series from Usable Knowledge, will explore those questions. Each episode features a conversation between Domonic Rollins, the chief diversity and inclusion officer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a guest who thinks creatively about one particular aspect of diversity, equity, and inclusion in schools and society — with a focus on exploring scenarios around identity and experience. Walking the Talk episodes,  recorded live and shared on Facebook, are intended to be authentic, two-way dialogues, in which we share with audiences the real issues that come up, for all of us, when we’re navigating these topics at school, work, and home. Watch our past episodes below, and contact us with suggestions.
