Explore platforms to drive greater learner equity, create inclusive environments for families, and give educators the tools they need to succeed.

As school leaders, being equity focused means you need to give students, educators, and families the tools and support they need to be successful. But what exactly does equity look like in action? How can technology help to bridge the equity gaps in schools instead of widen them? And, how are Microsoft tools helping to lead the way toward creating inclusive and equitable schools? Let’s dive in and learn!
