Equity-Forward Forums for Educators, Featuring Jamila Dugan


In this episode of SWIFT’s ongoing Equity-Forward Forums for Educators series, Wade Kelly sits down with educator and co-author of the book Street Data, Dr. Jamila Dugan. The discussion ranges from the embodied effects of post-pandemic fear and anxiety in educators and students to the value of authentic relationship building and avoiding superficial equity. Dr. Dugan encourages us all to resist becoming “fixers” and to instead become radical dreamers as a way to inspire ourselves and those around us.
