Kelly Wickham Hurst is a 23 year public school veteran as both a classroom teacher and an administrator in guidance, dean and assistant principal roles. In 2016, she created Being Black at School to help advocate for Black students both in schools with educators as well as for parents raising Black children. In addition to this, she is a National Trainer & Organizer for Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training. In her session, educators will learn how to use data to guide systemic change. Participants will leave this session with a scalable framework for moving equity conversations into an action plan, identify better practices and best resources to anchor their work, plans for equitable classroom design, values for effective advocacy, and facilitation of these learnings to bring back to their school communities.
