Harvard's Disruptive Equity Education Project

Dr. Darnisa Amante, as an educational and racial equity strategist, is deeply committed to the study of culture; innovation; and experiential ways to transform organizational and school culture on issues of racial equity. Since earning her master’s degree in Anthropology from Brandeis University, and her doctorate from Harvard’s Educational Leadership Doctorate (Ed.L.D.), Dr. Amante has honed her knowledge of culture and transforming cultures to build capacity in racial equity, parent engagement and design and implementation of equity-based initiatives for leaders, students, and parents and leaders.   Darnisa Amante Highlights:
  • Conversations of race can be terrifying
  • We may not change everything, but we can try to change some things
  • Do you understand the people you support as they move forward
  • What does it mean to be a public learner
  • People aren’t afraid of changing; they are afraid of loss
  • The definition of equity: give people what they need because they need more
  • How the Disruptive Equity Education Project started
  • Dr. Amante’s Giant Ah-Ha …
  • How to build empathy and what REAL active listening really is
  • What is NOT present in equity conversations right now
  • The definition of cultural relevance
  • 2 questions to be a highly reflective leader
  "What are my triggers … What is the change you want to see and how can I be that change in the world?"   Darnisa Amante Resources:   DEEP website   The Practices of Adaptive Leadership by Ronald Heifetz   An Everyone Culture by Kegan et al.   Deliberately developmental organizations HBR article
