Our Commitment to Equity and Inclusion
Our work at Center for Inspired Teaching draws on a foundation of inclusivity, regard for the rights and safety of all people, and respect for the dignity of educators and students. We believe that it is our collective obligation as a society to take responsibility and care for every child, and to work together to give every young person a happy, healthy start in life.
Inspired Teaching recognizes that the education system can either perpetuate or combat systematic oppression. Our organization exists within a world that is historically designed to marginalize individuals and communities based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, and ability. To actively and intentionally interrupt systems of power and oppression, we are committed to promoting civil discourse and social justice, starting in the classroom.
Through Inspired Teaching’s authentically engaging programs, educators and students have meaningful opportunities to engage in discussion, debate, and action around the topics that affect their lives, across racial, ethnic, religious, political, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities. We enact our beliefs and values by investing in a continual process of strengthening awareness and deepening cultural competence.
