StarPower simulation prompts faculty and staff to reflect on the ethical use of power

February 14, 2020 | Abby Liu

According to Tania Oro-Hahn, the Action Step Leader for Staff Development in Cultural Competency and Spanish Teacher, social emotional learning can more easily happen through a simulation experiences. That’s why at a January professional development day, faculty and staff participated in the StarPower simulation. Led by Sra. Oro-Hahn, the purpose of the exercise was to learn how power (or lack of power) can impact people and organizations. Examine bias. And consider issues of power, powerlessness, and diversity.

Following the simulation, faculty and staff reflected on our school culture and continued the conversation about diversity and inclusion that began earlier in the school year. Further training and discussions around issues of diversity and inclusion will follow throughout the spring.
