Connection Sessions for *POGM

Equity Connection Sessions for People Of the Global Majority

Please join CSD's Equity Department in connecting with the people who make CSD work, learning more about who they are, and reflecting upon issues important to CSD's *POGM community.

Connection Sessions are conversations between members of CSD's Equity Department, various invited guests, and the CSD POGM community. During each session, community members will be introduced to a person who is integral to supporting the school system, and we will discuss thoughts, interests, and concerns regarding City Schools of Decatur. Each session uses a racial equity lens - always asking the question -

"What does race have to do with this?"

These sessions may not always have the answers, but provide an opportunity for members of Decatur's POGM community (as well as others) to explore perspectives, pose questions, and share thoughts. Each meeting starts at 6pm. 

Log into the meeting here.

Session dates are listed below.

Connection Sessions will be recorded and posted on this page a few days after each event.

* People of color, despite being minoritized in the US, are a global majority. Thus, previously entitled BIPOC Connection Sessions, the name of this event is now Connection Sessions for POGM (People of the Global Majority). There is conflict regarding the use of the term BIPOC and this article details many relevant concerns. In short, the term BIPOC, which stands for Black, Indigenous, and Other People of Color, elevates some cultures over others in a way that does not reflect the respect each culture deserves.
