"Equity as Excellence"

Equity as Excellence is a unique opportunity for educators to receive concrete tools, research-based strategies, and guided practice to support diversity and equity work in their schools. Our method is rooted in the strong belief that equitable and inclusive teaching is simply good teaching, and all educators have the capacity to be equity leaders in their schools. We invite you to share your knowledge and engage in meaningful practice and reflection while learning from the top researchers in the fields of racial literacy and gender diversity.

We will focus on three areas for study and reflection:

· Foundations of Diversity Pedagogy: multicultural education and the field’s development over time

· Curricular Scope and Sequence: examples of inclusive classroom lessons and teaching strategies

· Leadership Best Practices: skills for administrators in leading a diverse community

Beginning with a thorough exploration of current research methods that support an inclusive teaching/learning environment, each day will include instruction on curriculum design along with leadership strategies that promote equity and sustain excellence. You will have time to engage with  role-specific cohort groups so as to apply our work to your particular sphere of influence. We will also break out into racial affinity groups (people of color, multiracial, and white) to further our learning and skill development.
