Leading For Equity is the National Equity Project’s foundational content; we have convened thousands of teams to explore and address issues of equity at the individual, institutional, structural and societal levels since 2002. We are excited to provide this transformational experience to both teams and individuals in a virtual setting. While we have traditionally delivered this course in retreat-style settings, we are creatively and confidently adapting the experience to a new delivery model while maintaining its core focus. We believe anyone can and all of us must Lead for Equity; we develop leaders’ (formal and informal) capacity to foster positive change on behalf of historically under-served students and families.
"Dismantling anti-Blackness systems, policies, mindsets, and beliefs as an educator starts with honest and safe inward work. Leading for Equity does just that by balancing critical hope with humanizing work. Love+Pain = Growth, but Love+Pain+Reflection = freedom."

"Making this moment a movement requires deep reflection to the systems that we are a part of everyday and the courage to interrupt and reinvent something that hasn't been done."
—Michael Sweeten, Principal, Oregon City School District, June 2020 Virtual Participant
"This is like no other "training" (I know this isn't a training) that I have experienced. I never felt more connected with a group of strangers and that we were all genuinely eager and willing to take back what we've learned in our perspective contexts. I feel ready to make change and continually look inward!"
—Michelle Carter, Director of Educational Content and Programs, SHAPE America, June 2020 Virtual Participant
