This institute consists of 5 workshops designed to enable district, school administrators, and teacher leaders to lead for equity. This series builds on the approach of Cultural Proficiency as a model for shifting the culture of the school or district; it is a model for individual transformation and organizational change. On the individual level, culturally proficient educators display personal values and behaviors that enable them and others to engage in effective interactions among students, educators, and the community they serve. At the organizational level, culturally proficient leaders foster policies and practices that provide the opportunity for effective interactions among students, educators, and community members.
Each session is designed as a full training day of interactive activities that build participants' cultural proficiency capacity. At the end of the institute, educators will leave with an Equity Action Plan that can be used in their LEAs.
