A racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse educator workforce is vital to closing the inequitable gaps that persist between students of color and their White peers. The New England Secondary School Consortium recently released a report with recommendations and critical approaches to address the systemic issues that prevent us from achieving this important goal. Join some of the authors of the report to learn more and engage in a discussion about what each of us can do.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explore the report’s framework and recommendations.
  2. Engage in a discussion with members of the task force.
  3. Identify promising next steps to consider to increase the diversity of the educator workforce in your own setting.
