2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Kathryn Smith Pyle has been invited to present a workshop based on her project SISTERS at the 3rd Biennial Difficult Dialogues National Resource Center (DDNRC) conference: University of Maryland, College Park, October 17-19. 

The presentation at the conference will be an interactive workshop format. The first film in the workshop, “Never About Race” will be shown, and participants will use a discussion board in real time to invite comments and explore the issues raised in the film. Participants will then break into small groups that will use the comments, along with additional internet resources, to discover inclusive campus models and how to apply what they learn to their own institution. 

Pyle has also invited one of the characters in the film, Khortlan Patterson Becton, to co-facilitate the workshop with her. Becton has experience in curriculum development and discussion facilitation related to race issues and has become a valued resource for ideas and feedback on the project. 

The grant will go towards registration, transportation, and meals for Pyle and Becton, as well as an honorarium for Becton and Zein Nakhoda, a education consultant Pyle is working with for this presentation.
