Event description

Description

In more equitable school systems we find more students who are well-educated, self-aware, and well-grounded in their own identity — and thus able to build strong relationships with people who are different than them. This is the foundation of building a more just, equitable, and inclusive future for Chicago. Join us for this panel conversation on how we can create more equitable schools and communities that lay the foundation for a more just and inclusive society.

Panelists:

Eve L. Ewing, SSA Assistant Professor and Author
Marisa Novara, Vice President of the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) and SSA alumna

Moderator:

Tawa Mitchell, Program Officer at the MacArthur Foundation and SSA alumna
