The Center for Strategic Initiatives coordinates and partners with stakeholders to identify, design, pilot, and elevate strategies that advance educational equity for Massachusetts students, particularly those who are traditionally or currently underserved. We are currently focused on three overarching priorities: 1) a diverse and culturally responsive workforce; 2) diversity, equity, and inclusion policies and practices at DESE; and 3) direct efforts that promote equitable student access and outcomes.
