The Equity Circle – 5/19/2021

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are complex!

Are you thinking about, creating, and/or maintaining environments where students, families, and staff can fully be themselves? What are your challenges? How do you move beyond speaking about the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion to doing the work every single day?

You may not know what to ask, you may not have answers to tough questions, or you may not even know where to start! Regardless of where you are on this journey, we invite you to The Equity Circle–a place to be vulnerable, to learn, to share, to collaborate, and to rumble with diversity, equity, and inclusion issues and best practices.

*Required: A willingness to be present, listen, learn, reflect and collaborate. No prior experience needed!
