Equity Minded Coaching
As coaches we have a responsibility to develop ourselves to support teachers and systems that allow students to thrive in school every day. In this three-part developmental series, participants will define equity-mindedness and develop understanding of how it relates in their context, interrogate their beliefs, engage with strategies to cultivate strong collaborative coaching partnerships with teachers toward creating equitable conditions leading to high outcomes for all students. Participants will leave with tools and other resources designed to assist in leveraging transformational change.
