Equity Needs Assessment
We coach leadership teams to analyze and evaluate the strategies being implemented within their organization to identify gaps and formulate a plan that will produce an equitable environment for all stakeholders.
Many schools and organizations recognize that employing equitable practices is critical, but they struggle with defining equity and determining what strategies should be implemented in order to ensure equitable practices.
The schools and organizations that we partner with will understand the definition of equity and be equipped to implement strategies that will ensure their practices reflect diversity, equity, and inclusion.
