We remain engaged with the women in the Academy through capacity-building support and training focused on policy leadership and equity policy planning. To this end, we utilize the Culturally Responsive Policy Ecosystem™.
Current and aspiring superintendents must become critical policy leaders engaged in the development of policy leadership skills of Cabinet and Principal teams. Furthermore, they must maintain this leadership across diverse policy ecosystems in order to ensure equity of access to quality education for all students.
Voice4Equity’s five-session hybrid learning program is targeted to school superintendents and aspiring superintendents at the cabinet level who seek to further develop their policy knowledge and unique voice. Each of the five sessions lasts for two-hours long; sessions are engaging and interactive.
The Policy Leadership Academy supports women leaders via:
A cross-national network
The promotion of shared strategies and ideas
Engaging participants in discussions regarding current challenges and opportunities related to the development of an equity agenda
Shared solutions to meet the learning needs of every student, particularly those from historically marginalized communities
Equity Policy Leadership
One of the programs available through the Academy leads to a credential in Equity Policy Leadership. The curriculum includes instruction on understanding and designing for the policy ecosystem, growing policy knowledge and voice, building policy networks and recruiting influencers, and applying policy leverage for lasting change.
The credential requires the completion of three modules (courses):
Module I: Getting to Equity
Module II: Uncovering Mindscapes for Equity & Inclusion
Module III: Powerful Equity Networks
Participants can take the modules online, in-person, or hybrid on a schedule and pace that suits their individual needs. The modules are available at different dates and times, typically in spring, summer, and fall.
