Team members should explore how your organization’s historical routines, policies, practices and data best reflect current equity practice. Each practice is designed to prompt collaborative and productive discussion, so time on each practice will vary as you deepen your examination. Teams can identify data and evidence that describe your status quo as well as exemplary practices you'd like to move toward. After working through a practice, you can download a pdf that captures your responses for use in future discussions, planning, and action.
