Becoming an Equity-Focused Organization

Learn how to use equity literacy to

  • disrupt inequity in your classroom, school, or organization; and
  • create and sustain equitable classrooms, schools, and organizations.

Sometimes standing up for what is right is less about whether-or-not you desire to do so and more about having the confidence, skill, and practice. In this seminar, participants will be given tools and opportunity to practice creating equity and recognizing inequity and to practice having the courageous conversations needed to establish an equity-focused environment.
