About the Institute

Equity Leaders Institutes provide opportunities for education practitioners to engage in two full days of intensive collegial study, discussion, and custom planning related to leadership practices for the advancement of educational equity in local settings.

This year’s Institute will bring together administrators, building and classroom-level educators, education stakeholders, service providers, and community members who are continuously working towards sustaining equitable educational environments, particularly in our current social and legislative climate. Thus, the Institute's goals are:

  • To engage participants in shared learning experiences related to effective practices for leading for equity. 
  • To provide an opportunity for participants to network with others in similar roles and responsibilities. 
  • To initiate planning towards efforts for increasing leaders’ capacity to effectively lead for equity.


The Application Process

Equity Leaders Institutes require that participants have some orientation to and knowledge of the targeted content. For the 2023 Institute, participants should have a basic understanding of educational equity and are engaged in equity-related work in their local settings.

Individuals interested in attending an Equity Leaders Institute are asked to complete an online application by August 18, 2023. The application process allows Institute planners to gain a sense of potential participants’ areas of need and interests to inform session content and activities.

Once accepted, applicants will be expected to register for the Fall 2023 Equity Leaders Institute. 

Standard Registration Fee: $100.00 (Due August 25, 2023). The 2023 Institute registration fee will cover all sessions, materials, snacks, and lunch on both days.
