Welcome to the second annual Rainier Educators of Color Network and Equity Leadership Team’s equity conference. Our theme for this conference is #IGotNext!
Our Virtual Conference will highlight amazing sessions for educators, students, and community members to learn, engage, and gather resources on various intersectionality and equity topics by talented presenters.
Our conference has been developed to align with the Rainier Educators of Color Network’s mission and vision. We hope that the conference creates opportunities for fellowship among all attendees, addresses issues important to people of color, empowers people of color and gives them a voice, and provides valuable tools and resources to educators and community members to navigate within their diverse spaces.
By looking at the conference sessions, you will notice that a lot of thought and attention has been given to the conference schedule. The goal is to ensure attendees are provided with training that will help them navigate equitably and responsibly in their educational communities in a way that reinforces and sustains success for all students.
We are excited that we have talented and resourceful presenters to address topics such as:
Native & Indigenous students
Black Girl Blues
Culturally Responsive Classroom Strategies
As we plan for future conferences, we hope you will complete an evaluation of your experience. This will help the Rainier Educators of Color Network and Equity Team plan for future events. We hope you enjoy your experience at this conference.
Thank you for coming!
