The Centering Equity Conference will influence thinking and engage participants in individual and collective action for social change. To ‘center equity’ means to focus on and create a point of action whereby fairness and justice are explicitly implemented in your personal and professional life and within your organizational structure.

This will be an all-day event with afternoon breakout sessions. As a conference participant you will . . .

  1. Explore techniques and strategies that will affect the ways in which you are activating humility in yourself, your community and your organization.
  2. Build a coalition of equity and principals committed to advancing equity through transformative and corrective policies and practices.
  3. Strive toward accountability to yourself and others by confirming and responding to issues of equity that are affecting humanity on health, cultural, economic, educational and social levels.
