City Limits: Winds of Change- Students Are The Leaders In SCSD’s New Diversity Training Initiative

Diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI training, has been on the rise for years across sectors, but following the murder of George Floyd, demand for these trainings surged. While many companies and organizations relied on typical training structures to educate their staff, Syracuse City School District decided to start fresh. Instead of bringing in someone from the outside to conduct DEI training, they are utilizing the talent, skills, and expertise of SCSD students through The Student Coalition on Race and Equity or SCORE.
