Skyline College's Learning, Equity & Growth Series (LEGS), formerly known as Equity Training Series, is an intentional sequence of experiences designed to increase awareness of the various intersections of equity. LEGS will provide attendees with additional access points to understand how equity gaps are not only created, but systematically embedded and supported within the many institutions, systems, infrastructures, and practices of our society.

Sessions include readings, film screenings, facilitated discussions, workshops, lectures, panels, and group projects. Collectively, these sessions ask participants to look past the sole notion of “equity as training” and challenge them to reflect on their current practices and how to incorporate intersectional equity knowledge into their current work and beyond.

Participant Outcomes

The goal of LEGS is for participants to incorporate concepts and theories from LEGS either into their current initiatives, projects, and ongoing workflow. Additionally, participants will be expected to participate in group projects that focus on pragmatic application of LEGS material. Participants will submit proposals during week four of the series.

Participant Experience

These sessions are hosted on Friday afternoons from 12:15 to 3:15 p.m. The first thirty minutes will be a time to connect with your cohort and reflect on material from the previous session. The remainder of time will be the talk/workshop by the designated presenter. The final session will consist of presentations sharing the planned application of the practices discussed during the series.
