The Intersection of Equity and Inclusion: Cultivating a Community of Change Agents (Members Only)

The Collaborative’s Annual Education Conference convenes educators from across NYC to engage with and learn from national experts. This year, we’ll explore the intersection of equity and inclusion and how to create change within your sphere of influence.

In addition to ongoing professional development throughout the school year, the Collaborative hosts larger-scale conferences and mini-conferences in order to convene public educators from across the county. Led by nationally-renowned experts, educators participate in discussions and trainings where they are encouraged to challenge mindsets, expand skillsets, and collaborate with one another – as well as reflect on issues affecting education nationwide.
