In this three-day Equity Institute, participants will recharge and reimagine schools and districts as Communities of Belonging that empower, transform, and connect the lives of students, educators, leaders, parents, and community members. We’ll practice experiential and whole-person-centered learning as we explore topics and themes that create communities of belonging.
In this “unconference” model, participants will immerse themselves in a cohort for the duration of the Institute, creating an in-depth individual and group learning experience. Participants will walk away invigorated and connected to their expanding network of equity advocates as we widen the circle of belonging and create the conditions for educational equity.
