The Racial Equity Leadership Network is an 18-Month fellowship program for Executive Leaders in districts who are committed to addressing persistent disparities in their systems and ensuring that race and class are no longer the most reliable predictors of student success. Each cohort of the Racial Equity Leadership Network (RELN) will be comprised of up to twelve (12) executive leaders from school districts in the South. RELN Fellows will attend five two and a half day in-person convenings focused on essential levers for equity-centered leadership and system transformation. The fellows and their districts will also receive customized coaching to support the planning and implementation of a co-created action plan addressing their unique equity challenge. Fellows will be asked to create in-district design teams, a 5-7 member workgroup of district colleagues committed to addressing racial disparities within their school system. The workgroup participants must also have the desire, influence, and capacity to support the Fellow in their efforts to forge change.
