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 advance the equity-centered work at their respective institutions.

The academies are informed by anti-racist and anti-sexist pedagogies and practices rooted in social justice frameworks. Participants engage in facilitated activities and discussions anchored by a comprehensive peer-reviewed guidebook.
