Pursuing Racial Equity in Education

Have you already begun to have conversations and want to lean into the discomfort as you learn how the ideology of white supremacy upholds the existence and persistence of racial disparities in the United States? Are you looking for a brave space to push your thinking about the ‘head, heart, and hands’ work needed to achieve racial equity? Then join us for our summer racial equity institute. It’s time to ensure just outcomes for all students, raise marginalized voices, and challenge the imbalance of power and privilege.

Regardless of the demographics of your school community, true educational equity will never be achieved in the absence of racial equity. Racial equity can’t be achieved without a commitment to embracing anti-racist policies and practices. This is an ongoing journey that requires full engagement in a series of intertwined and compulsory actions such as ongoing self-reflection, acknowledging white supremacy, recognizing the complexities of the various levels of racism, having crucial conversations with friends, family, and colleagues, and building the moral courage to lead to be an anti-racist leader and educator. 

Participant Outcomes: 

  • LEARNING—An understanding of how racism, power, and privilege impact teaching and learning in the United States

  • LEANING—A better understanding of how your personal experiences, perspectives, and identity impact how you learn and engage with others.

  • LEADING—Identify opportunities for anti-racist leadership and allyship within their schools, communities, and organizations.
