Leaders for a Just Society is a six week long online PLC that will explore the role of equity in public service. We will define equity and tools to implement equitable practices in our respective workplaces and classrooms. Through discussion and reflection, participants will develop their own goals and action steps to make their workplace practice more just and fair.
