Bright futures need

strong leaders.

Our mission is to build excellent and equitable schools.

We imagine a world where schools and communities pursue breakthrough success for every student—regardless of race, geography or family income. Through training, coaching, and technical assistance, we foster the skills and dispositions necessary for leaders to achieve excellence and equity in the classroom, school building, and central office.

Our commitment to uplift leaders > transform mindsets and actions> create vibrant cultures of innovation > build excellent and equitable schools is what fuels our team’s curiosity and inspires collaborations that make a difference.

"I am a more equity conscious leader because of GLISI.  They lit a desire within me to help bring about more equitable outcomes in education and in my community."
