The Work is Never Done: NACSA Resources for DEI in Authorizing

The Work is Never Done: NACSA Resources for DEI in Authorizing

FIRST IN A SERIES

In some circles recently, diversity, equity, and inclusion have become taboo words. NACSA, however, stands strong by the idea that a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive authorizing profession will result in stronger school and life outcomes for students. 

That is what led us to create the Closing the DEI Gap In Authorizing toolkit. This guide is for authorizers committed to improving their work cultures and making authorizing a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive field. A Seat at the Table is our companion webinar series.  

While the webinar series has concluded, the work is never done. Building a culture of belonging is an ongoing endeavor. Whether your office is just getting started or is further along in its journey, NACSA is here to be a resource.
