Equity Institute at Skyline College

The Equity Institute (EI) administers institutional assessments, publishes research and facilitates professional development opportunities for organizations committed to showing up differently in the areas of culture, race, gender and institutional equity. The EI hosts the following experiences throughout the year for organizations all across the nation:

Equity Summit (Bi-Annual)

The Equity Summit is a one-day experience featuring 13 scholars and practitioners in social justice and equity. Six of the scholars deliver “Equity Talks” and six participate in plenary sessions while the last speaker delivers a keynote address. The event
attracts over 500 educators and social justice advocates from across the nation.

The Cabinet Roundtable (Bi-Annual)

The Cabinet Roundtable will feature former and current community college presidents and
vice-presidents offering trainings and coaching to newly minted presidents and VPs. This two-day experience is designed to prepare executive administrators for their leadership journey through an equity-minded lens.

Equity Academies (4 Per Calendar Year)

The Equity Academies are professional development opportunities for leaders to immerse themselves into themed, multi-day experiences introducing participants to baseline concepts, interrogating data and mapping implementation strategy for participants to implore the equity-centered work at their respective institutions. Institutions will register as “teams” and work collaboratively throughout the academy to develop the best solution for their institution.
