Leading & Designing for Equity in Complex Systems

Upcoming Offerings:

In collaboration with the Stanford d.school’s K-12 Lab, we have prototyped a design approach—Liberatory Design—that meshes design thinking with an equity lens and complexity stance. This new iteration of Leading for Equity in Complex Systems adds a third day, centered on Liberatory Design and how to actually approach equity- and complexity-informed design work in your system.

Who Should Attend

District Office Managers & Directors, Program Directors, School Leaders, Board Members – anyone charged with implementing significant initiatives or projects involving multiple people and groups.

Participants are strongly encouraged to come with colleagues from the same context.
