In this session, we will provide strategies for how to view school culture through an equity lens, engage in dialogue with students and employees, and build supportive, equitable structures and programs.This session is designed for any school that is working toward providing more equitable experiences for Black students in their school, regardless of whether the school has a Black@ account created by students.
