  • 2022-23 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Leaders' Network

    The DEI Leaders' Network comes together in response to calls for action to ensure each student benefits from an equitable and diverse learning experience. This Network serves as a community of practice with the intent of realizing the promise of developing equitable and inclusive educational journeys for students. Here, we leverage personal, professional, and personal-professional experiences to build and action strategies, resources, policies, and plans that advance DEI goals.

    The NYSED Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework is at the heart of our work. It highlights the importance of "incorporating an equity and inclusion lens in every facet of our work….” We embrace a differentiated approach, considering each individual, classroom, school, and district and their varied interests and needs.

    Network Goals:
    - Convene DEI leaders and practitioners to collaborate on DEI policy, strategic planning, and implementation
    - Consider the essential question: To what extent is my district/school/classroom an equitable one?
    - Ground our work in NYSED's CRSE Framework and NYSED's DEI Policy
    - Identify an area of focus and implement action steps to support your district's DEI efforts
    - Contribute to Network resources and co-construct priorities

    Network Members:
    - While the DEI Leaders' Network is open to all engaged in DEI practice, we recommend joining with a colleague or school-wide or district-wide team.
    - Members serve as "leaders” in the broadest definition of the term.
    - Members are expected to bring ideas back to their districts, schools, and/or classrooms
