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 launched our first FORUM/Diversity in Philadelphia. The event was created to provide a forum where educators could benefit from workshops committed to themes of equity and inclusion in schools, and to allow job seekers from underrepresented communities the chance to meet hiring contacts for a day of faculty recruitment interviews. The event has grown and now spans two days, providing even more opportunities for professional development and interviews between candidates and schools.

Seeing a need to increase the number of women in leadership roles, in June 2016 CS&A held the inaugural Women's Institute, designed to support women and their allies 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.

Our commitment to equity and inclusion is not limited to FORUM/Diversity and our Women's Institute. 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.

We have also recently launched our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consulting Practice Group. Led by CS&A's Director of DEI, Lawrence Alexander, the Group draws from our deep history of working with schools and educational organizations to offer consulting services in the important and ever-growing area DEI.
