Requiring formal education as a default is an inequitable hiring practice we need to end

…It is ironic that so many of us are fighting for education equity, working to fix a system we know leaves behind so many people, and yet we still use formal education as a barrier to filter out job applicants. Using formal education as a default perpetuates inequity, and our organizations and our community also suffer for it, because we may be losing out on valuable diversity of perspective, skills, and experiences.
