Equity Summit (Bi-Annual)
The Equity Summit is a one-day experience featuring 13 scholars and practitioners in social justice and equity. Six of the scholars deliver “Equity Talks” and six participate in plenary sessions while the last speaker delivers a keynote address. The event attracts over 500 educators and social justice advocates from across the nation.
The Executive Roundtable (Bi-Annual)
The Executive Roundtable will feature former and current community college presidents and vice-presidents offering trainings and coaching to newly minted presidents and VPs. This two-day experience is designed to prepare executive administrators for their leadership journey through an equity-minded lens.
Equity Academies (4 Per Calendar Year)
The Equity Academies are professional development opportunities for leaders to immerse themselves into themed, multi-day experiences introducing participants to baseline concepts, interrogating data and mapping implementation strategy for participants to implore the equity-centered work at their respective institutions. Institutions will register as “teams” and work collaboratively throughout the academy to develop the best solution for their institution.
