Recorded on May 13, 2021
In this archived professional learning session hosted by the COVID Education Equity Response Collaborative’s Equity Accelerator, presenters shared ideas and strategies customized for California County Office of Education (COE) leaders to help them prioritize their personal mental health while also working toward equity for students, educators, and families. Attendees were asked to reflect on personal and professional sustainability and how to stay connected to the “why” of equity work while taking tangible steps to create systemwide change.
This was the third 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.
