“The work of creating equitable school systems is everyone’s responsibility, but when a superintendent and an equity officer work together, the opportunity for change can be monumental for the system and every student it serves,” writes Leadership Academy Chief Access & Equity Officer Dr. Mary Rice-Boothe in her new piece “What Equity Officers See as Their Challenges,” published in the November issue of AASA‘s School Administrator magazine.

In her article, Dr. Rice-Boothe outlines the shared experiences and challenges of those who serve as chief equity officers in school districts. Dr. Rice-Boothe is also quoted in the magazine’s feature story, “New to the Table: The Chief Equity Officer,” which explores the impact of chief equity officers in leading diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in schools.
