May 12 9:30 to 1:30 pm. WISR All School Gathering: Working on WISRs Strategic Plan

All School Gathering (ASG)
Working on WISR’s
Strategic Plan

May 12, 9:30am – 1:30 pm
All School Gathering (ASG)
Working on WISR’s Strategic Plan
May 12, 9:30am-1:30pm
This semi-annual All School Gathering will focus on an important discussion about WISR’s strategic plan:
1) on what has been done, over the past two years, to lay a foundation for this plan;
2) what DEAC (the accrediting agency—www.deac.org) expects to be in a strategic plan;
3) to elicit ideas and suggestions from everyone participating on May 12 about what should go into that plan, and
4) to identify a process for completing the plan by this coming September. Formulating a realistic and well thought out plan for further developing and sustaining WISR over the next several years is important to WISR’s future—both to gain accreditation and to enable WISR to grow and thrive.

Among the topics
to be discussed are:
~Realistic and needed targets for increasing student enrollment and feasible strategies for achieving those targets.
~What are the “risks” and “opportunities” in the “external environment” that we should be aware of, in developing a plan for WISR.
~What are WISR’s strengths to be built on, and weaknesses or limitations that we must address? We need to be both realistic and imaginative, most likely. For example, it has been suggested that we might change our name to “World Institute for Social Research”—is this visionary and realistic, or presumptuous?

MFT Students: Attendance at the All School Gathering counts as attendance at an MFT seminar. Please RSVP by e-mail to johnb@wisr.edu to participate by videoconference or phone and provide a phone # in case of technical difficulties.

The Way of ColorInsight: Understanding Race and Law Effectively
Through Mindfulness-Based ColorInsight Practices
(Georgetown Law Journal of Modern Critical Race Perspectives, Spring 2016)
By Rhonda V. Magee
Introduction
Despite much good effort to the contrary, reports from a wide variety of fields and locations serve daily to remind us that race still matters in America. To many legal scholars,these reports are not only not news but they suggest work that must be done within the legal academy to minimize racial bias within contemporary law. For example, in his groundbreaking Article, Trojan Horses of Race, Jerry Kang highlighted the research identifying and confirming
implicit bias as a pervasive cognitive, interpersonal dynamic, and placed on the research agenda that should follow this revelation scholarship by law professors examining “teaching strategies,”
as well as “debiasing programs, and [educational] environments.”

Jake Sloan WISR Alumni April 22, 2018 at Global Hero Round Table in San Francisco

The Hero Round Table is the only conference in the world dedicated entirely to talking about heroism and the people performing heroic deeds. The event invites people from very different backgrounds and walks of life. Like in the famous TED conferences, the speakers present short talks to communicate their core message.
www.heroroundtable.com/sanfrancisco
Jake Sloan, WISR Alumni and Author of Standing Tall: Willie Long And the Mare Island Original 21ers: A Legacy of Courage, Activism, and Social Justice will be speaking at the Global Hero Round Table, hosted in San Francisco on Sunday April 22 at 3:30 pm 

Jake Sloan, one of the youngest of the original 21ers had only begun working as a pipefitter helper in July 1960. Sloan had dropped out of the 10th grade in Richmond and joined the 21ers in his excitement over the Civil Rights movement. Older members didn’t want him to jeopardize his career, but Sloan joined anyway.

After working at the shipyard for almost five years, he returned to school, eventually earning a master’s degree in history at San Francisco State University pursuing a Doctorate in Education at WISR, Berkeley.

After a teaching stint, Sloan opened Oakland-based Davillier Sloan Inc., the state’s largest labor compliance company. His company develops equal opportunity programs for minorities and women in the construction business.
