Equity Leader Accelerator

Creating A New Normal Mastermind

July 8 - August 6

Let’s face it: COVID-19 did not bring inequities into our schools.

Our students have been experiencing WiFi and device challenges, food insecurity, and trauma way before this pandemic. Our students may continue to experience these challenge after COVID-19. 

As an Equity Leader, you play a pivotal role in Creating a New Normal.

Now that more conversations are happening about the challenges our families are facing, it’s time to begin the planning for what education should look like going forward.

Let me ask you a few questions

  • Would you like the opportunity to be in a small group community (6-8 members) of like-minded equity leaders and gain access to years of experience and wisdom from other equity leaders like you?
  • Would you like to surround yourself with trusted peers that you can share strategies and challenges with them while getting solid advice and fresh perspectives?
  • Would you like to develop a plan to address areas such as achievement gaps, equity in online education, social-emotional support for students and staff, and rebuilding school culture?
  • Would you like five weekly meetings that you can participate in virtually with your Community as you develop your leadership skills?

It’s hard to do this work alone. Connecting with others who are also doing equity work is one of the most important ways to grow as a leader. That’s why I’m inviting you to join the Equity Leader Accelerator. A small community of leaders dedicated to their personal and professional growth as voices in leading equity.

What do I get when I join the Community?

Members of this exclusive Community will participate in a coaching/accountability community in which everyone is committed to a high level of personal and professional growth.

This is a small group and will be considered full with 8 members. After that, interested leaders will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if an opening becomes available.

Here are some of the benefits of joining:


  • Five weekly Zoom meetings

  • Registration to the Creating A New Normal Summit
  • “Hot seat” sessions

  • Access to all meeting recordings

  • Access to our member’s community forum to continue conversations and collaborate with other members


A special gift for joining the group.

As an added bonus, you will gain access to the Leading Equity Coalition, Leading Equity Virtual Summit All-Access Pass, and the Bringin' Hip Hop Into Our Schools All-Access Pass for 5 weeks (July 8 - August 6).
