Learn for Change. Lead for Equity.

In our constantly evolving schools, young learners need leaders who advocate for their uniqueness, opinions, and equal opportunities. Learn how to champion a modern approach to cultural diversity for your employees or educational professionals and for your students. Compare today's educational needs for diversity and cultural awareness to historical inequality in schools. Understand how your own personal opinions can affect your leadership style and how cultural interpretation and perspectives in general integrate with social justice and action plans. Use reputable standards such as the Cultural Proficiency Continuum to assess your school's or district's status and growth. Learn how to improve core values and responses to students' needs using the Guiding Principles of Cultural Proficiency. Prepare yourself to lead other educators into an environment designed for access and opportunity and set your students up for success.
