About the Equity Connect! Series
The Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center (MAP Center) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and offers high quality, responsive technical assistance services to public education agencies across a 13-state region. Equity Connect! is a virtual event where districts and/or state agency partners share how they have leveraged MAP Center resources, experiences, and partnerships in pursuit of their equity goals. This series is intended to provide further insights to public schools, districts, and state departments broadly. Additionally, to support teacher and leadership education program students and faculty in advancing their learning regarding authentic, practice-based equity obstacles and avenues experienced by our partners. Within this virtual convening, partners will introduce their rationale for partnering with the MAP Center, outline goals of the partnership, highlight one key MAP Center resource they have utilized in their equity work, and present key approaches to optimize transformative change towards equity.
