We believe that building local capacity, and a team approach within a larger network of support, are critical for fostering sustainable change.
Our goals are to increase equity and reduce prejudice, promote culturally-responsive teaching, close achievement and opportunity gaps, foster an inclusive school culture,
and encourage positive multicultural change.
Involvement in the Program begins with an action-packed, highly-interactive, five-day Training Institute designed to prepare you and your work team with the knowledge, tools, strategies and resources needed to design and carry out an effective Diversity Action Plan.
Rather than asking teams to implement a set curriculum or standardized multicultural directives from above, UnityWorks fosters a grassroots approach that empowers
each team to create its own blueprint for change.
1. Site Team: Designs and implements a Diversity
Action Plan for its own school or organization.
2. Local Coordinator: Supervises the local program
and serves as a liaison to UnityWorks.
3. UnityWorks Foundation: Provides training, tools,
resources and ongoing support.

The liaison oversees the development of the UnityWorks Program in that district, supervising the school teams and ensuring that the Program is officially integrated into district goals, priorities, calendars and assessment plans.
UnityWorks will provide the liaison with guidance and materials, and will be available for ongoing consultation and support. Each school or district is also asked to provide a small budget of $1,000 directly to each site team to support its Diversity Action Plan.

Site Team Requirements
The full potential of the UnityWorks Training is realized when
a school district adopts the Program, and appoints a liaison
who can offer encouragement and support to the site teams
as they implement their Diversity Action Plans.
