Join us for a virtual workshop series focused on methods and practices IRPE offices can utilize to foster campus cultures that are able to activate racial equity data and inspire positive change for racially minoritized students. We will cover approaches and strategies to assess the data culture at your institution, facilitate equity data conversations, and cultivate inquiry and curiosity amongst campus practitioners. This workshop series will incorporate a blend of live-synchronous coursework via Zoom and asynchronous engagements via Canvas.

Below is a general overview of each of the three workshops. Participants will be invited to the Canvas course up to a week in advance of the workshop series to access materials that will support learning outcomes throughout the series. All workshops will be recorded via Zoom and recordings will be posted to Canvas for reference should participants miss a live workshop and/or wish to revisit workshop content at a later date.

Workshop Series Dates:

  • Workshop #1: Friday, January 21, 2022

  • Workshop #2: Friday, January 28, 2022

  • Workshop #3: Friday, February 4, 2022

Registration Fees:

  • RP Group Member Rate: $350

  • Non-member Rate: $450


  • Participants will learn how to prepare their campuses to activate racial equity data and help ensure practitioners don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis.

  • Participants will learn how to build trust and community around equity data by identifying what institutional data culture is, receive an institutional data culture assessment, and learn methods that IRPE offices can leverage to facilitate discussions based upon the findings.

  • Participants will learn how to navigate scenarios where institutional practitioners are unsure about what action to take based upon data or metrics.

  • Participants will learn strategies to cultivate and stimulate inquiry and curiosity to help practitioners dig deeper and gather more information and insights to inform action.

  • Participants will learn key concepts to facilitate and communicate racial equity data and help practitioners reframe deficit-minded research questions into equity-minded approaches to inquiry.

  • Participants will learn how to identify and engage resistance using a reflective process to examine the personas of resistance and application of strategies to navigate through it.

  • Participants will learn how to ensure sustainable outcomes and improvement harnessing equity-minded processes that can be integrated within participatory governance frameworks.

  • Participants will learn about important connections to and applications of data coaching models to help institutionalize equity-driven priorities.

 Recorded Webinars and Workshops

Workshop 1: Designing Metamajors to Address Equity Gaps

Thursday, May 6, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by WestEd
 Kathy Booth

  • Clarify how you can construct metamajors that help students imagine their futures, connect with others who share their dreams, and practice the essential skills within related disciplines.

  • Learn a new framework to help students imagine, connect, and practice throughout their college journey.

  • Leave with a set of tools that help to identify core skills at the metamajor level that connect academic pathways to jobs--particularly for non-CTE disciplines.

Workshop 2: Leveraging Student Support (Re)defined in Guided Pathways

Thursday, May 13, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by RP Group
 Darla Cooper

  • Examine the Imagine-Connect-Practice Framework through the lens of the Six Success Factors in order to support a more effective and holistic approach to providing students with a valuable experience in their metamajors.

  • Explore what metamajors would look like if students were experiencing the Six Success Factors as they Imagine, Connect, and Practice.

Workshop 3: Aligning Course Learning Outcomes to Occupations

Thursday, May 20, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by JobSpeaker
 Jarlath O’Carroll

  • View the end-to-end technical support structure that will help students see their pathway through education into jobs and a career. The technical support provides a front-facing view into the metamajors but also provides on-going engagement of a skills pathway that ensures students see the benefits of their work.

  • See how the technical support helps students stay on the path, collect essential skills, find work-based learning opportunities, and understand how their path leads into employment.
