Increase Access and Transparency
District-wide (Superintendents, Superintendents cabinet, School Board Members etc) learn how interactive data and insights, gleaned from district employees can create a real-time snapshot of your districts current culture and equity stance. Leverage 26 Letters to better understand where your strengths lie and where there are areas for opportunity providing targeted support where necessary.
Building-wide (Principals, AP's, Teacher Leadership etc) learn how anonymized, aggregate data can create the foundation for which equity and clinical work can be based, tracked and measured. From community and building culture, to racial equity and individual identity, we not only provide the instruments to measure and track progress across all the aforementioned metrics but also provide an e-suite of tools for educators to grow in each of those areas.
Educators (Teachers, Social Workers, Support Staff etc) learn how life is lived in forward but understood in reverse. Before we can lead and support others, we must take a deep reflection of ourselves to better understand how to support our students and our communities of color. Our "Humanizing" curriculum will help you uncover and discover your personal identity before diving into the perception and construction of our students communities, eventually ending at the intersection of how our educational practices can sustain hope and healing.
What Educators are saying
As an administrator in MPS, I see great potential value in the proposed diversity, engagement and inclusion modules. I think that they could provide valuable shared learning for building level equity teams. They could also be used to create more district level conversations if used across multiple sites. Schools are often committed to improving racial equity and inclusion at their sites, but at times don't know where to begin making changes. This feels like it could be a tangible tool for that work.
