Let’s Talk About Race (LTAR) Certification 10-Week Online Training
Epoch’s Let's Talk About Race (LTAR) Certification is designed specifically for individuals who want to lead their school, district, or community toward a deeper understanding of the impact that race has on student achievement. Many methods currently in place are a top down approach to creating equitable change for students. This program believes that a bottom up approach is always necessary in order to respond to educators who are demanding results now.
As a certified equity coach, you will develop the tools, techniques, and strategies to lead school and community participants to look at race from both a personal and institutional perspective; begin talking about race openly; look at your own school or community through a racial lens; and take the first step to mobilize others toward a uniform understanding that race does, in fact, matter in school achievement.
Training in LTAR is provided by an Epoch Master Facilitator with years of experience in delivering the LTAR workshop. It includes online, webinar, and face-to-face training, which provides participants with rigorous study, time for reflection, practice, and feedback.
In depth study of the Let’s Talk About Race training materials from both a participants and facilitators perspective. It will provide a comprehensive, rigorous and engaging foundation to prepare educators to effectively facilitate the Let’s Talk About Race content and support their district to build capacity around cultural competency. There will be two 1-hour live webinars to work with participants to deepen their understanding of the content and answer any questions that arise through interacting with the content.
