Dr. Ebony I. Green is a pioneer in creating systemic equitable outcomes for underrepresented students, namely children of color, at risk, and/or transgendered. Dr. Green was tasked in early 2016, to lead the Department of Equity and Access which oversees both the equity as well as the social and emotional needs of the 11,000 students enrolled in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. As the district’s first Executive Director of Equity and Access, she was instrumental in developing an Equity Report Card and Fair Student Funding Formula which provided a baseline and leveraged resources to support the needs of students who have systemically been marginalized within the school district and greater society. Additionally, she worked diligently with her team to execute equity audits, Train the Trainer culturally responsive pedagogy and curriculum professional development, trauma sensitive classrooms, and the My Brother’s Keeper districtwide male initiative that provides manhood training, academic, as well as social and emotional supports for at risk, Black and Latino males and their families to decrease suspensions and recidivism rates.
In addition to her work in Newburgh, Dr. Ebony I. Green is the Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone Equity Consultants, where she serves to enact global change in the practices and policies that impact underrepresented children all over the world. To that end, she was nationally recognized as a leader in the field of equity and selected by the Racial Equity Leadership Network to develop sustainable district structures that will shape the ways in which children receive an equitable educational experience.
