The self-assessment tool is designed to help you explore your strengths and growth areas in learning related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The purpose of the tool is to help you reflect upon your level of knowledge, awareness, skills, and action in a set of DEI competencies that HGSE views as essential for all professionals in the field of education today.

The current tool is framed broadly around issues of DEI and intended to give you a general read on your own knowledge, awareness, skills and action. Although we plan to build a tool that covers multiple domains (e.g., race, class, gender, sexuality), currently some sections of the tool focus specifically on race, racism and ethnicity. We begin with this focus because past experience has demonstrated that racism is an urgent and pervasive issue at HGSE, as well as in many parts of the educational sector. Ultimately, the tool we create will help students assess their understandings across multiple dimensions of diversity.
