Empower Equity: Support BIPOC Leaders in Education

21% of $10,000 goal
This campaign ended on November 30, 2023, but you can still make a gift to Mills College by clicking here!

Help us advance equity in K-12 education! One important way K-12 ed systems advance equity is through the recruitment and retention of a diverse staff. A racially diverse staff: 

  • supports retention by “mitigating feelings of isolation, frustration, and fatigue” that can occur when one is an individual teacher or leader of color, 
  • supports systems to disrupt harmful attitudes about people of color, including students and families,
  • increases academic, attendance, and college readiness performance, especially for students of color,
  • improves conditions for educators of color.

This Giving Tuesday, Lead by Learning is raising funds to support our BIPOC Leaders Network, a professional affinity space that furthers BIPOC educator retention and thriving by:

  • creating an inclusive community
  • amplifying BIPOC experiences, and 
  • implementing effective strategies to support BIPOC educators' retention and thriving.

Donations will also support the launch a White Educators Anti-Racist Inquiry Network (WEAIN), a coalition of white colleagues investigating how they may be perpetuating unjust mindsets and practices in themselves and in others.

Every donation, regardless of its size, directly helps us center BIPOC voices, uncover equity challenges, and improve conditions to retain BIPOC educators and support their thriving. Thank you for supporting "Empower Equity"!
