Equity & Inclusion

“We can always make a difference if we muster the courage to think critically, to care for others, and to sustain hope, so we can organize and mobilize with one another to bring power and pressure to bear on the prevailing status quo.” - Cornel West

CS&A Diversity Mission Statement

At Carney, Sandoe & Associates, we are committed to the importance of increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion – both within our own organization and among the educational communities with whom we partner.

Cognizant of our ability to reach a wide variety of schools, teachers, and educational leaders, it is our goal to provide educators with resources that help foster diverse & inclusive environments. We aim to facilitate continued learning and to encourage valuable networking opportunities.


In January 2015, we held our first FORUM/Diversity in Philadelphia. The event has grown and now spans two days, providing opportunities for job seekers from underrepresented groups to interview with hiring schools while simultaneously offering robust professional development workshops around equity and inclusion in schools.

We also recently expanded our DEI programming to the West Coast with Carney Connections, a daylong DEI event held before our FORUM/San Francisco hiring conference.

Women's Institute

Seeing a need to increase the number of women in leadership roles, in June 2017 Carney Sandoe held the inaugural Women's Institute designed to support women in the education community by creating a trusted space for personal and professional advancement and mentorship. The event serves to empower women by providing skills, tools, and networking opportunities to obtain traditionally underrepresented roles at schools.

Recruitment, Professional Development

Our commitment to equity and inclusion extends beyond our events. Each year, we recruit at historically black colleges and universities across the country, keynote or participate in national conferences devoted to increasing inclusion work including the BOLD Summit at the Galloway School and the NAIS People of Color Conference and engage in on-site professional development with diversity experts to continue to learn and grow our own cultural competencies.

Consulting for Schools

We recently launched our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consulting Practice that partners with schools to help them build more inclusive communities through implicit bias training for the hiring process, cultural competency work, campus climate surveys, and workshops for faculty and students.
