Consider some ways to build support around your work in supporting equitable and inclusive CS classrooms:

 

  • Find someone to help you in this work. This might be a co-worker, a family member, a friend. Dedicate some time to talk to this person about your commitment.
  • Set a weekly calendar reminder to reflect on your week through the lens of equity and inclusion. Use that time to journal or reflect on your drive home about your progress in implementing the strategy.
  • Consider doing professional reading about equity and inclusion. This reading could be done on your own, or better yet, with another group of people to be able to discuss and process what you learn.
