YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
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.
