4ward Inclusion Consulting, Inc.
Promote Vulnerability. Embrace Diversity. Shift Mindsets. Develop Leaders.
At 4ward Inclusion, we create the conditions that youth from marginalized populations need to be successful in life.
Our antiracist and anti-oppressive programs are for youth, educators, parents or caretakers, and community organizations. Our programs promote critical thinking, reduce racial and educational disparities, and increase social and emotional learning that helps individuals from marginalized communities live healthier lives.
As a result of our programs, youth exercise their leadership and commitment to their learning. Parents are equipped with more key tools to support their children into adulthood. And every educator in their school is better prepared to support students' social and emotional development.
In direct response to COVID-19 and it's impact on over 50 million children across the United States, we will offer our Leadership Program virtually. Starting in the Spring, we will offer both the virtual program to include two tracks: leadership skills and life skills.

The interactions and conversations made this session engaging. I will continue using tools for inner reflection. I learned that honest feedback and reflection is needed to impact equity for students.
The session was great. It was a refresher on the way we think about our students and self-reflection and how to improve on the biases across the board.
I found your session informative and it really pushed some serious self-reflection. I would love to use one of the handouts you provided in this session as a way to get some leaders to do some of my school leaders to do self-reflection as well. It made me feel and think about myself and potentially others with whom I work.

I like when we just start discussions on our own because they become really engaging and heated and we learn so much from them.
While watching the video on Black people talking about race, I got emotional a few times. I sometimes feel as if it's not my place to give any input on topics such as racism and discrimination because I have never personally been in a situation where someone was bashing my race. So far, this class has made me more informed about the struggles that people go through so I can be reminded of my privilege.
