Independent School District 622 Office of Educational Equity
(North St. Paul, Maplewood, Oakdale)
Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity (SEED)
SEED is a peer-led professional development program that creates conversational communities to drive personal, organizational, and societal change toward greater equity and diversity. We do this by training individuals to facilitate ongoing seminars within their own institutions and communities. SEED leaders design their seminars to include personal reflection and testimony, listening to others' voices, and learning experientially and collectively. Through this methodology, SEED equips us to connect our lives to one another and to society at large by acknowledging systems of oppression, power, and privilege.
SEED Facilitators run small group discussions throughout the year in the district. If you are interested in joining SEED, contact Heidi Shaback at 702-8176 or Janelle Fischler at 748-7483.
