Bank Street Education Center

Center on Culture, Race & Equity

The Center on Culture, Race & Equity wants adults who work with children to understand the impact of bias and shift towards culturally responsive and strengths-based systems and practice. Our professional development model addresses race and equity on three levels—personal, professional, and institutional. Recent projects include working with public elementary schools in Washington, with settlement house community organizations in the Bronx, NY, and with Head Start practitioners in Head Start Region 5.
