Empowering Teachers and Leaders as Designers of Their Communities
We believe great design can support communities in understanding the meaning and implementation of equitable practices and policies.
Our labs are focused on using innovative design experiences to increase empathy and promote culturally responsive and equitable learning communities. We’re reimagining diversity, equity and inclusion training to empower educators and leaders as designers in creating sustainable change for their districts, schools, and organizations.
means every learner has access to opportunities that are aligned with their needs and support their academic and social emotional success
We assert that equity in education resembles a system in which:
- Group identities (race, ethnicity, gender, religion, class, sexuality) are empowering and essential components in reaching educational potential.
- Social circumstances (housing, healthy food, access to quality health care, safe neighborhoods) are organized in ways that support the well-being of all learners.
- Public policy and laws promote equitable outcomes in education (e.g. fair funding, culturally relevant curriculum mandates, pipelines for people of color).
