Brighton's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultants

RE-Center (Race and Equity Center for Education)

RE-Center provides professional learning to various stakeholder groups to further their racial equity lens and analysis. The approach is based on shifting mindsets in order for participants to understand where they are situated in terms of historical and contemporary oppression, how their identities align or intersect with those of the communities they serve, and how their ideas, relationships, and practices are informed by their positionality. Additionally, RE-Center supports each school building with coaching and consultant opportunities, including topics around essential questions such as:

  • How does who you are impact how you lead? 
  • Which practices advance equity and racial justice? Which undermine your commitments? 
  • How can you embody what you have learned about equity and racial justice? 
  • How do you measure your impact?
