Meaningful change in states, districts, regions and schools begins with a period of Exploration. Exploration stage activities provide organizations with a valuable opportunity to set the course for deeply understanding the experiences and hopes of the populations served. Based on this understanding, diverse, collaborative teams can identify and co-design the implementation and alignment of policy, processes, and practices to ensure equitable access, opportunities and outcomes for all. How we engage in the process, starting with exploration, can either reinforce systemic inequities and biases or support the work of the organization to be intentionally anti-discriminatory.
