“We believe great design can support communities in understanding the meaning and implementation of equitable practices and policies.”

How We Do It


Learning and Development

We work directly with schools, organizations, and communities to develop and implement antiracist strategies to advance equitable learning outcomes for all students.


We engage in research, analysis, consultation, and synthesis of information to produce thoughts, ideas, and practical approaches that advocate for and promote antiracist policies and practices in the education system.

Coalition Building

We convene BIPOC teachers, administrators, professionals, and community members to support and cultivate meaningful, cross-sectoral interactions that promote and support the development of antiracist educators, schools and educational communities.

Like the Equity Institute, mycelium functions as a system that connects roots together and relies on trust to build and support the well-being of the entire ecosystem it represents so that its foundation is grounded and sustainable.
