  • PTS EQUITY LENS: DECISION-MAKING TOOL 


    PURPOSE: 

    What are we trying to accomplish? What is our goal?

    INCLUSION: 

    Who will be impacted and are they being included in the process?

    Who is not included in the process and why?

    *How are we intentionally engaging the community (students, staff, families, and community partners) in the process?

    OUTCOMES:

    How might this decision increase, decrease, or ignore equity?

    * Is there a subgroup either positively or negatively affected?

    * What data has been used to inform the process and what does the data tell us about our subgroups?

    CONSIDER:

    Race, gender identity, sexual orientation, LGBTQIA+, religion, age, country of origin, geography, disability, class/socio-economic status, balance of power, etc. 

    COMMUNICATION:

    How and when will the communication take place? 

    How will you ensure communication takes place in an inclusive, culturally sensitive, and responsible manner? 

    EVALUATION:

    Are we accomplishing our initial goal? 

    How will feedback from staff and stakeholders be collected?

    Who will we share feedback with? 

    What did we learn from this feedback?

    How will you use evaluation and learning to raise racial awareness?
