Appropriate for school leaders, administrators, and teachers, this session will lead participants through a series of exercises that allows them to identify problematic structures within their district, schools, or classrooms and design solutions that lead to lasting change. The emphasis on using data to drive decision-making has allowed leaders and teachers to identify problems that exist within our schools. This session is designed to introduce participants to a new way of thinking about those problems and find solutions in their schools using a systems thinking approach. Participants are asked to keep an open mind as they begin to see themselves as a part of the system in which inequities exist before applying a set of tools and developing the strategies that will allow them to put an end to these inequities.

Participants will learn to use a systems-thinking approach to identify appropriate levers to reduce structural inequities and develop a plan of action to change or eliminate at least one structure in their district/building/department/classroom.
