2023 Excellence in Equity Awards

The Excellence in Equity Awards program recognizes the companies, leaders, authors, and educators whose tremendous efforts in education are helping schools achieve equity everywhere. 

2023 Excellence in Equity Awards - education award program

Each and every day, the educators in our schools―teachers, support staff, school administrators, and district leaders―along with their trusted product and service providers take on the challenge of ensuring equity and access for every student, everywhere. This is a critical effort that is foundational to the mission of the education system, and when equity initiatives are successful, there is an incalculable positive effect on potential future outcomes for our learners.

The Excellence in Equity Awards program is designed to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of both educators and industry to improving opportunity and outcomes for students.
