  • Equity is More than a Word: It's a Practice
    Professor Bensimon will speak about the ways in which community college faculty, leaders, and staff can learn to "practice" equity as part of their professional routines. She will introduce participants to the conceptual differences in equity, equality, and diversity; the theoretical underpinnings of action research as a catalyst for self-change; and the tools to enact equity-focused action research on their own practices.
    Presented by Dr. Estela Bensimon, Director and Professor of the Center for Urban Education/Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California
