Detailed Description

 

Educational Equity

  • Exists when all individuals are fully prepared for the roles of their choice, regardless of personal or social circumstances.  
  • Requires systems of support that result in full access to opportunities that lead to personal growth.

 


 

The Diversity Council

focuses on three educational issues:

1. addressing the school to prison pipeline by building individual advocacy skills in students,

2. strengthening and diversifying career pathways, and

3. improving communication and connectivity between existing and developing educational resources and potential students.

 


 

Expected Outcomes:

 

Improved youth's individual empowerment, self-advocacy, advocacy for others, understanding bias, and active participation in school culture - all central to creating positive school and life experiences, establishing a foundation for success

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
