Our in-person or virtual professional learning series helps K-12 educators and leaders more effectively lead on racial equity. Academy participants are introduced to content and strategies they have likely never learned anywhere else in their educational or professional upbringings. Over a co-determined time period, we offer virtual or in-person sessions on the USC campus in Los Angeles. Each session is highly engaging and focuses on a specific racial equity topic.
Academy instructors are nationally-known experts who consult with numerous K-12 schools and districts. Their sessions focus mostly on strategies and practical approaches. Instructors use contemporary cases of racial problems in K-12 schools. Emphasis is placed on learning from equity gains and racial missteps that have recently occurred elsewhere; learning how to get ahead of situations and reducing the risk of crisis; and learning actionable racial equity leadership strategies. Participants also receive numerous tools and resources.
