One of the challenges our educational institutions are facing is attempting to address the realities of what is being referred to as the Racial Reckoning and the perceived equity gaps in student performance without proper framing or context.

Additionally, we will explore frameworks and strategies toward addressing this phenomenon that are sustainable, transformative and rooted in justice at both the individual and institutional levels.
