Educators, Family Members, Community Members, Business Leaders, and all who play a role in a child’s life
SERC and the SERC Foundation are excited to hold a conference on the importance of racial equity in education.
Calvin Terrell, founder and lead facilitator of Social Centric, and Aaron Jafferis, a playwright and teacher, will keynote this important conversation on an equity transformation approach to ensure that all students get what they need to be successful in school and in life.
Breakout sessions will address the multifaceted ways that race and systemic racism impede our students’ outcomes and limit opportunities for success in academics, social development, health, and family engagement. Participants will learn about the work of individuals committed to supporting students of color and engage in activities on transforming systems to support an excellent and equitable education for all.
