One of the weaknesses of many common “diversity” frameworks in the United States is that they are built around vague notions of “culture” rather than strong commitments to equity. The result is a network of equity initiatives that are no real threat to inequity. In this session I will discuss the equity literacy framework — a framework for strengthening educators literacy related to equity. Its key principle is that there is no path to equity that does not involve a direct confrontation with inequity. The presenter will discuss what equity work looks like when it is really designed to be a threat to the existence of inequity.
