The Wisconsin School Counselor Association Webinar Series

WSCA is proud to announce it’s launch of a new webinar series that will focus on hosting and producing a number of valuable, topical, and highly requested webinars throughout the year!

Some will be a single session, others may have the opportunity to join in over a number of days, but all will provide high quality professional development as we tap into our association’s broad network of knowledgeable and expert members and partners.


Racial Equity Series

WSCA has been and continues to focus on the critical importance of equitable practices in comprehensive school counseling programs. Since the death of George Floyd we are now accelerating intentional actions to address racial inequality and injustices in our state for African Americans. We recognize that there are over 400 years of historical systems that were created to enslave and marginalize people of color. This work will not be over in a year and needs to have a long term sustainable plan so we can make Wisconsin a great state for all of our residents to thrive and live in.

One of the steps we are taking is offering professional development opportunities, especially since we are all in different stages of understanding the systemic racism that permeates Wisconsin culture.

Personal Equity 101 Series

Please join Derek Francis, Minneapolis Public Schools School Counseling Manager, in the following webinar series. We ask that you commit to attending every session in the series and doing the in-between session work to fully benefit from participating in Personal Equity 101.

WSCA sees how committed counselors are to equity and this series will give you the opportunity to reflect on your own personal cultural knowledge, skills and abilities. Derek will guide you through exercises, discussions, and presentations to provide a foundation for deeper engagement and ongoing learning related to racial equity and social justice. It will help you recognize where you are in your own personal journey and how you can move forward.

Let’s Talk About Race Series*

Please join Derek Francis, Minneapolis Public Schools School Counseling Manager, in the following webinar series. We ask that you commit to attending every session in the series and doing the in-between session work to fully benefit from participating in Let’s Talk About Race.

Many counselors live and work in communities that have not addressed racial inequities and injustice in Wisconsin or are unsure how to address racial conversations in their schools. This series is intended for counselors that have already begun the foundational personal equity work of Identity Reflection, Bias & Privilege, and Cultural Humility and are looking for training on how to bring racial inequity conversations to your school communities.

August 12 – How to talk about race issues with families
August 19 – How to talk about race issues with staff
