Boat and Plane

Ambidextrous leadership

Potential is equally distributed across race and class, but opportunity is not.

Hard Reality

Find a way to close the equity gap, achievement gap, activity gap, opportunity gap

We know that NC statistics reflect major opportunity gaps according to race and income.

16%- Percentage of NC students who scored high enough on the ACT to be considered college ready by Board of Education

13%- In 2015, only 13% of Latinx adults in NC had attained a college degree

38%- According to the 2014-15 NC state test, only 38% of A-A 3rd-8th grade students were considered proficient and on grade level in reading and math, compared to 70% of white students

Talk about our demographic and how the effort to close this is cooked in our design

A bit of guidance: The experience journeys put all the signature experiences together to articulate the lived experience of a member of this community. For example, this slide might show up as a “day/week in the life” of a specific student, or an annotated schedule.

A slide may or may not be sufficient for capturing your learners’ experience. Consider the examples below as you build.
