About Tracey A. Benson Consulting    

                

Tracey A. Benson Consulting strives to be the launching pad for meaningful change and improvement toward racial equity for individual school systems. Our firm specializes in designing comprehensive equity audits, custom needs analysis, diagnostic racial equity evaluation, strategic planning and implementation, and anti-racist leadership development. 


Our flagship program, The Anti-Racist Leadership Institute is designed to help education leaders build knowledge, skills, and ability, while concurrently developing a concise, high-yield plan of action to increase racial equity. This program, which includes a 40 hour educator, anti-racist master class and ongoing coaching and support, is a unique approach to racial equity consulting. In this model,  leaders in education institutions not only build their knowledge and set goals, but also implement the strategies over a 3 month period with the support of an expert anti-racist leadership coach. 


Through our domestic and international collaborations with state agencies, school districts, colleges and universities, and education-based organizations, we have improved the lifetime outcomes of students of color by being laser-focused on solving the most intractable, contemporary racial equity issues.
