Equity and Diversity
The BASA Equity and Diversity Committee has been working diligently to develop an electronic library to equip district leaders with the resources they may use when addressing inequities within their classrooms, buildings, districts, and communities. We encourage educational leaders to interact meaningfully with his/her entire school community and to learn from one another, honoring differences while embracing shared values. We commit to providing a safe environment that encourages expression of differences in ways that invite dialogue and education rather than cause alienation. We encourage curiosity and inquiry so that we can learn from a diverse range of experiences and points of view. While the work is complex, we are dedicated to our equity journey, including persevering through challenges, and openly sharing our learning.
