NEW YORK CITY METROPOLITAN AREA, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — GOMO Educational Services is a professional consultancy dedicated to the pursuit of educational equity in schools. The mission is to provide professional development and executive level training through transformative learning experiences which enable school leaders and staff to recognize and address social and cultural barriers to student achievement. They also equip districts with tools necessary to overcome these barriers and improve social emotional learning habits and student academic success.
GOMO’s services include network building, on-site workshops, conferences, keynote speaking, equity audits, equity consulting, executive leadership coaching, community talks and program design. GOMO has assembled a specialized team of highly trained experts to facilitate these services. The training topics range from equity to social emotional learning, cultural competence and responsiveness, restorative practices, implicit bias, trauma, curriculum and more.
“Generally, people think that time changes things. At GOMO, we believe that in order to make a real difference then we need leaders who are intentional and proactively focused on achieving new goals. #WhyGOMO” says Dr. Josue Falaise, Founder and CEO of GOMO Educational Services. “Supporting DEI&B in K–12 and higher education can’t simply be a project or an initiative: It takes a mindset and a focus on systemic transformation.”
Having a school community that is diverse in many ways helps all students thrive. There is an opportunity to bring DEI&B across race, ethnicity, social class, religion, gender, national origin, ability, and many other factors. Organizations that leverage diversity are more innovative and more successful because of the different perspectives people bring that enrich discussions and encourage more creative thinking.
“Last year was our district’s first year of being part of the Equity Leadership Network.” says Ann Bodnar, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, South Orange-Maplewood School District, NJ “The experience we had during the professional development sessions was unbelievably informative, thought provoking, and helped our district to make real changes so that all of our students begin to feel a sense of belonging, a part of our school community and to learn in a safe and culturally sensitive environment.”
