Recorded on September 09, 2021
In this archived professional learning session hosted by the COVID Education Equity Response Collaborative’s Equity Accelerator, a panel of California County Office of Education leaders and WestEd staff discussed elements of the National Equity Project’s Liberatory Design approach and how leaders can use them to improve equity in classrooms, schools, and districts. Moderated by emerging education leader Aniah Francis, the session explored how education leaders in California are using this framework to transform systems to be more just and equitable.
This was the fourth event in a year-long series offered by the COVID Education Equity Response Collaborative. As part of the Collaborative, WestEd leads the Equity Accelerator to support COEs in improving alignment of whole-child and whole-school efforts that cohere around a vision of equity. Using a two-tiered approach, the Equity Accelerator provides a statewide professional learning series and an intensive fellows program for select COEs.
