“It is time for leaders to roll up their sleeves and actively observe, engage with, and validate the varied perspectives within their school community.” 

Topics That Will Be Discussed During the Webinar Include:

  • The importance of developing equity-centered leadership teams
  • Experiential learning opportunities in professional development
  • How equity has a far-reaching impact on the school system

Variation in how district officials identify equity-centered leaders has broader implications for how equity work is pursued, who gets positive recognition, and who receives additional support. After all, how can the school system be improved if a variety of people view it differently, and how can equity-centered leaders be developed if there is no district-wide consensus on what a model equity-centered leader knows and does? Variations in who is considered an equity-centered leader may reflect a need for a unified vision.
