The CI4E Resource Hub offers guided pathways, a unique learning tool where individuals or teams examine the role of equity in their continuous improvement practices by answering self-reflection and scaled equity questions. After completing a pathway, you will receive a customized list of resources that meet your education team’s needs along the CI process.

How to Use Guided Pathways

1. Select a stage

Teams begin by choosing among the six continuous improvement stages based on the unique needs of your team and the communities you serve, and the education and social inequities in your school or district.

2. Select an area

Each stage is divided into unique areas that connect equity work from the individual to the team and community level. Some stages also contain a fourth area.
