Are You Proud of Your Equity Accomplishments? We are excited to announce a call for applications for the 2021 Equity Innovator Recognition Program!
What It’s About?
Equity Innovator is a recognition program to showcase local and state education agencies that have engaged in a Tier III systemic equity partnership with the Region III Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center (MAP Center) or the previous Region V Great Lakes Equity Center and exemplify system-wide transformation towards educational equity.
Who Can Apply?
We invite submission of applications from partners that have demonstrated meaningful increases in awareness and/or knowledge of equitable educational practice among staff and stakeholders, have changed policies or practices related to providing students with a full opportunity for participation in all educational programs, regardless of their sex, race, religion, and national origin, and have had overall increases in the capacity to ensure safe, inclusive, and quality education for all students, with specific emphasis on historically marginalized youth.
How We Honor Your Hard Work
The Equity Innovator recipient will be honored at a recognition program during our 2021 Equity Leaders Institute. The honoree will receive an honorarium and the opportunity to showcase their equity work during the Institute.
