LEARNING COMMUNITY SUMMARIZED BY MELANIE TERVALON, MD, MPH (2012) Expectations
Listen and learn Be fully present: attentive to oneself and others Share what you can Not everything will be covered We are perfectly imperfect FACILITATORS STARTING ASSUMPTIONS There will be more questions than answers This is an ongoing learning process
We are equals -peers- in this learning space, working together for student success Our values, cultural identities, and past experiences matter They are in the room! Conflict is always possible, and conflict is OK when addressed from the heart. We are all prejudiced; prejudice is learned and can be unlearned. We are here to learn from each other

Diversity AN EQUITY FRAMEWORK AND LENS BY CURTIS LINTON (2011) The Equity Framework is based on the analysis and integration of an equitized culture, praxis, and leadership approach. The framework, although very strongly encouraging critical, equity, and culturally
responsive pedagogies, argues that focusing only on these strategies comes at the expense of improving the culture and leadership within the educational institution. Practices, Culture, and Leadership Are Equally Important and Need to be Equitized! WHY AN EQUITY FRAMEWORK? The Success of equity depends on the
school and/or systems ability to create an effective framework that guides all decisions, practices, and policies according to equity (Linton, 2011 p.49). Without a clear framework, few of these strategies can drive sustainable success closing the gap strategies have little lasting impact because the framework
defining why the work matters is never clearly articulated (Linton, 2011 p. 52). EQUITIZED EDUCATORS AND INSTITUTIONS Educational Equity: Educators provide all students with the individual support they need to reach and exceed a common standard (Linton, 2011; p.39). Institutionalized Equity: Educational policies,
processes, and practice that guarantee educators provide all students with the individual support they need to reach and exceed a common standard or expectation (Linton, 2011; p. 87). EQUITY LITERACY ABILITIES (ADAPTED FROM GORSKI, 2014) 1.

BREAK CULTURE IS NOT EQUITY EQUITY EXISTS (OR NOT) WITHIN OUR CULTURAL FRAMEWORKS CULTURAL HUMILITY: FOUR CORE PRINCIPLES 1. A lifelong commitment to self-evaluation and self-critique
2. Redressing the power imbalances in the learner-educational leader relationship 3. Developing mutually beneficial partnerships with communities on behalf of individuals and defined populations 4. Advocating for and maintaining institutional consistency Cultural Humility is a PATH to Equity Reference: Tervalon M, Murray-Garcia J: Cultural humility versus cultural competence: a critical distinction in defining physician training outcomes in multicultural education, Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved 1998; 9(2):117-124.

math because they come from underserved schools and just dont like math. Latino students dont want to transfer because they prefer to stay close to home There families values education less. Equity-mindset: What systems do we have in place for our students who need additional academic support? Are we highlighting African-Americans in the Math and Sciences in our curriculum? How are we reaching out to our Latino students to support their transfer aspirations? How are we reaching out to Latino families? Adapted from: Witham and Bensimon, 2012
