Sustainable CT will offer two opportunities to participate in a free, three-part, virtual equity classroom. The classroom provides a comprehensive framework of belonging, equity, diversity, and inclusion (BEDI). Attendance at all three class sessions is required. Our June Classroom will hold sessions from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm on: June 10th, 17th, and 25th. Our July Classroom will hold sessions from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm on July 8th, 15th, and 22nd. Attendees will be invited to join a Google Classroom to access bridgework to complement online trainings. Content will be geared to help Sustainability Teams integrate BEDI considerations into their Sustainable CT applications. Who should attend? Sustainability Team members (elected officials, municipal staff, commissioners, volunteers) in registered Sustainable CT communities. Attendance is capped at 30 for each session (June and July). 

Advancing equity increases the prosperity, health, and safety of the entire community. In order to transform structures, organizations, communities, and systems, community leaders and residents need an equity lens focusing on the unique experiences of marginalized identities including People of Color, LGBTQ+, and Immigrants. This highly interactive training provides:

- A comprehensive framework and definitions of belonging, equity, diversity, inclusion (BEDI)

- An overview of the value of BEDI, community engagement, and why representation is important

- Practical strategies for advancing BEDI through inclusive town events, community dialogue, resident feedback, and town responsiveness.

Classroom leaders will offer a variety of tools and teaching methods including graphic facilitation, visual imagery, theoretical models, small group dialogue, and kinesthetic interaction, to create a dynamic space that supports all types of learners.
