Dear Sacramento City College Colleagues:
Greetings SCC colleagues!
This week of September 16-22, the focus of training is on hiring/equity, social justice, and the “self-study. See the calendar of events below.
If you haven’t done so, please spare a few minutes of your time to participate in the survey, providing us with important information and feedback regarding the PD/Flex/Convocation week programming.
Meanwhile, if you have any questions about professional development as it relates to college wide efforts and/or flex, please reply directly to Tyler Wyckoff at WyckofT@scc.losrios.edu and myself at Norman.firstname.lastname@example.org.

Akshita Agarwal · Educator
Imagine you’re on a game show and you can choose between two prizes: a diamond … or a bottle of water. It’s an easy choice – the diamonds are more valuable. But if given the same choice when you were dehydrated in the desert, after wandering for days, would you choose differently? Why? Aren’t diamonds still more valuable? Akshita Agarwal explains the paradox of value. [Directed by Qa’ed Mai, narrated by Julianna Zarzycki].
