The Irvine Unified School District creates a new kind of classroom

In Josh Bersin’s 2020 DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging) study, he observes, “You can’t drive the bias out of the person; you have to drive it out of the process.” While DEIB professionals have long been making strides to implement education and awareness and remove systemic barriers to level the playing field for all workers to have an equal chance to succeed, learning and development in most organizations is still reserved for salaried employees or high potentials. If learning is offered to hourly employees, it's commonly a check-the-box compliance exercise and is not intended to provide skill development and growth.
