We will help you understand the impact that bias is having on your district, schools, and educators in areas such as hiring, employee satisfaction and retention, and interactions with students and the wider community.
A school’s leadership creates its environment and is therefore our primary focus. By working with those in leadership positions, we will address the unique nature of your school and district and how best to solve issues of bias that are affecting your performance and growth. By working with the school leaders individually or as a team, we will raise awareness about how implicit bias may be affecting your professional interactions and your school environment. We will then provide a proven, practical plan for addressing these issues, thereby fostering both personal growth and a new environment of inclusion.
How are you doing on Diversity and Inclusion? Can you do more? By closely working with your school, we will evaluate your current status and in which areas you can experience more growth. Our Inclusion Program will uncover any unconscious biases, behaviors, or norms that are occurring in your school and may be causing unwanted results. We will conduct interviews, group meetings and a review pertinent district programs in order to prepare a realistic plan for a way forward.
You have a school and children to focus on. Let us focus on the often unseen issues that may be affecting your success and work environment.
