PHENND Fellows - Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator
The Philadelphia Academies, Inc. is a 54-year-old non-profit whose mission is to alleviate poverty by creating opportunities for underserved students to thrive. We work with students, educators and partners to improve outcomes for Philadelphia’s young people by providing workforce development programs for middle and high school students, capacity building for teachers and school leaders, and industry organizing. Our priority is to address gaps in opportunities for students - particularly those that, by virtue of their economic and/or minority status as well as the location and resource-levels of their schools, have less access to high-quality education and/or the types of experiences needed to be college and career ready. Over the last 5 years, PAI has been working with a series of schools, referred to as the Ninth Grade Success Network (currently comprised of 13 schools), to support teams of teachers in using data to identify students in need and to plan, implement, and track evidence-based interventions to support them. This work has highlighted a need to address diversity, equity and inclusion issues in order to remedy individual, institutional and structural barriers to fully supporting 9th grade student success. In the first year of this project, we researched the landscape of such issues to fully understand the problem and identify best practices with respect to solutions, with a focus on our 9th grade work. In our 2nd year, we provided coaching supports for teachers around DEIB needs, as well as began working internally with our Board DEI Committee to provide DEIB workshops and guided conversations organization-wide, so all staff have a foundational understanding of DEIB work. In our 3rd year, we seek to expand this work, so that not only are our staff more deeply rooted and committed to DEIB, but we are consciously and intentionally incorporating DEIB principles and best practices into all our student and teacher facing programs.
