A free course to learn about your biases!
Dr. Eakins made me think deeper about what I do in my classroom and what we do in our school. Thank you for all of the time and energy you have put into helping teachers and making schools better.

I developed my awareness and gained vocabulary for the challenges and experiences that many students encounter on a daily basis.
Dr. Eakins values each educator's experiences and leverages them to create content to push our thinking about what we do, with the expectation that we will go forth and be Equity Advocates.
M. Devon Speaks
After leaving the workshop presented by Dr. Eakins, I felt empowered as a young man to go out into the world with a renewed mind, standing firm in my truth, and equipped to make a difference. Dr. Eakins has firsthand knowledge of what he teaches and gives of that knowledge with the purpose of exacting change.
Student Affinity Groups Foster a Sense of Belonging
Our students often look to us for support in their interactions with classmates, teachers, and other stakeholders during the school day. One of the most frequent questions I receive has to do with recommendations for creating student affinity groups within their specific school environment. Educators need a student-centered curriculum and instructional practices that foster a sense of belonging. They’re looking for ways to amplify student voices.
The Leading Equity Center is responding with this program. We’ve been working with student affinity groups since 2019, within middle school and high school districts throughout the U.S. This three-session program is designed to share our process and help you run your own student groups in your schools.LEARN MORE
