Implications for Racial Equity Leadership Development: Lessons from the Equity Leaders Action Network
Report June 13, 2022
This document reflects the collective learning gleaned from three years of creative work within the Equity Leaders Action Network (ELAN) learning community. In it, we describe foundational concepts that we believe need to shape racial equity leadership efforts, core racial equity leadership competencies, and racial equity leadership capacities that need to be nurtured in racial equity leaders. There were many lessons learned in designing and implementing the ELAN. The energy, wisdom, and collaborative spirit racial equity fellows and faculty brought to the ELAN community helped enormously to refine, amend, and improve what we learned about ourselves, each other, and how to carry out racial justice and equity leadership development.
