our vision


Brownschooling believes that transformative work begins with self-reflection and dialogue. Once we understand our own value system and lenses for viewing the world, we can begin to be more successful in interacting with and supporting all stakeholders. Conscious of our ability to reach a variety of educators, organization and corporate leaders, it is BrownSchooling’s goal to provide training and resources that help foster inclusive, equitable, culturally relevant environments. Through our services, we aim to facilitate continued critical reflection and provide practical tools for your team.

our core values

Cultural backgrounds should always be the compass of classroom pedagogy and workforce culture.

Schools and organizations are spaces grounded in community, compassion and collective decision-making.

Teaching and leading are acts of activism and should reframe challenges as opportunities.

Open dialogue is encouraged and open-hearts are expected in inclusive schools and organizations.

testimonials from workshop participants

The presenters gave ample opportunity for discussion and interaction using theory and real world examples”
The information is very relevant to creating a nurturing, equitable, compassionate learning environment and curriculum.”
The workshop leader was interesting and presented the information very clearly. She gave everyone a chance to have input and was respectful of everyone's opinions. I came to this workshop thinking that it might be a waste of time. I was wrong! I enjoyed the discussions as it was very pertinent to the population that I work with.
