Illinois School Counseling Association: Race & Equity Steering Committee
The ISCA Race & Equity Steering Committee was developed by the 2020 executive board and is comprised of school counseling race & equity advocates from across the state of Illinois. The steering committee is tasked with providing feedback to the executive board to ensure that the organization is implementing anti-racist and equitable practices for both members of the board and members within the organization. The steering committee is also tasked with providing feedback on the content development of a 3-day "ISCA Race & Equity Credential", which will be launched this Spring 2021 FREE to members.
