NEP logoLeading for Equity

The Leading For Equity™ series is a signature service of the National Equity Project, working with leaders (both formal and informal) to develop their capacity to foster positive change on behalf of historically under-served students and families.

Leading for Equity is an experiential institute providing ample opportunities for sharing, reflection, and planning to inform your current work. The Leading For Equity series will develop individual and collective leadership at every level of schools, districts, foundations or nonprofit organizations. Teams deepen their commitment, relationships, and efficacy while developing strategies toward equity goals.  Teams receive expert, caring guidance and facilitation to work together to address the personal and technical challenges they face in their educational equity efforts.


Learning sessions will focus on deepening participant awareness and understanding of key concepts and frameworks for examining and addressing disparities impacting the experiences and outcomes of students who have been historically marginalized within our school systems. Specific objectives include:

  • Expanding ability to articulate an Equity Imperative

  • Increasing ability to identify, analyze, and address issues of inequity

  • Developing skills, strategies, and approaches to maintain leadership for equity

Content and Resources

Content and resources for the sessions will be drawn from the following:

  • Historical roots, current realities of, and personal experiences with racial equity disparities

  • Exploration of the ways in which implicit bias is formed and how it impacts and reinforces decisions that marginalize groups of people

  • Examination of opportunity structures, situatedness, and experiences of belonging within our districts and communities

  • Understanding how stereotype threat impacts student learning and methods for interrupting this impact

  • Leadership for Equity Competencies

  • Power of personal narrative and strategies for incorporating listening as an equity leadership strategy

  • Systems approach to addressing racial equity issues
