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.

Our Mission

Through research, professional development, and community partnership, we collaboratively shift adult belief and practices to be culturally responsive and strength-based. This leads to equitable environments and policies, so that children of all backgrounds can thrive and realize their full potential.
