Overview: Equity Academy
The Equity Institute at Skyline College is thrilled to announce the launch of our Equity Academy REIMAGINED into a remote learning modality! This means the Equity Institute at Skyline College can serve more people across the nation and support a greater number of professional industries in learning how to engage and advance equity.
Registration is now available for the first cohort(s) of our Level-1: Fundamentals of Equity training beginning on October 17, 2022.
(SMCCCD employees and non-SMCCCD attendants will have seperate cohorts)
The training is a 4-week course designed to be completed asynchronously. Each week requires approximately 2-3 hours of time to review, explore, and engage short videos, learning activities, and readings related to the weekly topics. Additionally, participants are required to engage in 1-hour facilitated dialogue twice (2x) a week to ensure the level of social support and interaction that produce a rich learning environment.
Upon the completion of Level-1, participants can enroll in training at Level-2: Developing an Equity-Mindset and Strategic Capacity as well as progress to training at Level-3: The Equity Practitioner.
Digital Badges (Badgr)
Each respective level of completion earns participants a certificate of completion as well as a digital badge (Badgr), for social media venues such as LinkedIn, from the Equity Institute to signify the authenticity and merit of their equity training.
…and there’s more…
The Equity Institute recognizes those who may wish to engage in equity training in-person and/or in teams. In response to this recognition, we have designed an accommodation in our Equity Academy for Cohort Teams of up to 35-participants with their own designated facilitator to help usher them through the dynamic learning experience.
We look forward to your participation and continued support! For additional information, please reach out to Interim Manager Allen Ocampo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
