"We are always negotiating our identities--they're not fixed, they're not static--they're in a process of evolution." – Dennis Shirley

Dennis Shirley believes a perfect storm is upon us and educators are in the middle of it--that identity issues often incite and divide us, but they are actually our way out of the storm. Shirley is a scholar of educational change who helps schools around the world to improve teaching and learning. His research focuses on the frequency of conflict between the ideals of educators and the realities of power and politics.

In his third book, co-authored with Andy Hargreaves, The Age of Identity: Who Do Our Kids Think They Are... and How Do We Help Them Belong? is a compelling call to action for educators and families alike.

Join us at the City Club as we hear from Dennis Shirley on how schools must engage with young people’s identities in their fullness and complexity.
