Often called the "Margaret Cho" of Diversity Trainers, Jessica Pettitt uses politics, humor, and her own life experiences to take audiences through a safe but confrontational process of examination and open dialog in her interactive workshop "Social Justice Core Competencies."
The Bush School offers this workshop free to the public as part of its third annual Diversity Speaker Series. You can take part on Tuesday, February 3 from 7-9 p.m. at The Bush School's New Gym, 3400 E. Harrison St., Seattle.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a space to practice skills and discuss concepts such as power distribution, dominant and subordinate group dynamics, and identity formation.
Over the past two years, The Bush School's Diversity Speaker Series has welcomed more than a dozen nationally recognized speakers to engage the Bush community, and the greater Seattle area in conversations about privilege and diversity.
The Bush School, in the Madison Valley neighborhood of Seattle, enrolls about 580 boys and girls in kindergarten through 12th grade.
