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 create space for collaborative learning towards advancing educational equity via equity-oriented leadership.  

  • To strengthen relationships and build networks around equity-oriented leadership in challenging social and political contexts.  

  • To advance the capacity of staff to develop district and building level leaders’ ability to center, lead, and facilitate equity-focused initiatives. 

  • To initiate planning towards efforts for increasing leaders’ capacity to center educational equity in defining and enacting leadership. 


The Application Process

Equity Leaders Institutes require that participants have some orientation to and knowledge of the targeted content. For the 2024 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 the Equity Leaders Institute are asked to complete an online application by August 5, 2024. The application process allows Institute planners to gain a sense of potential participants’ areas of need and interests to inform session content and activities.
