I attended three one-day sessions with Heather Hackman through another district’s Cultural Collaborative, and the insights that I gained impacted me personally and professionally. Heather’s racial justice seminars lead participants through a progression of understanding race, racism and whiteness. Heather’s ability to use humor with this serious subject matter makes her sessions as enjoyable as they are insightful. In addition, Heather uses a combination of written reflections, group sharing, and lecture to bring variety to her presentation. Teachers from my High School attending the seminars liked Heather so much that we ended up hiring her for three staff development sessions at our school!
