Book Study
The WERA Virtual Book Study brings educators across Washington together for rich discussions of books about racial equity and diversity. Our previous book was Beverly Tatum’s bestseller, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race. Our next book is Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt’s Biased, Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice that Shape What We See, Think and Do. Eberhardt’s research reveals critical information that can help educators better understand the impacts of bias perspectives on the students and families we serve.

Social Hours
WERA will host occasional social hours this year to support networking and community building with other WERA members from across the state. October’s social hour was hosted by WERA Past President Hilary Loeb and WERA’s OSPI Representative, Aira Jackson.
