7 Essential Equity Questions


Linda Belans, EdD.

  • How are we beginning with Self to examine implicit and explicit biases?

  • What does an equitable school look like, feel, and sound like for students, staff and families?

  • How are we creating a sense of belonging?

  • How are we creating conditions for students, staff, and families to feel free to be authentic?

  • What are we doing to inhibit this?

  • How are we noticing and acting upon opportunities to interrupt systemic and structured racism, classism, sexism, and gender discrimination?

  • How are we actively creating equitable schools, organizations, and communities?
