Thank you to all who joined the Education Equity Research Initiative at CIES in Atlanta and contributed to the conversation on advancing equity in and through education. We were there in full force with seven panels, a workshop and roundtable discussion, and a reception sharing the Initiative’s accomplishments to date and exciting things to come.
At our reception, Kolleen Bouchane, Board President of the Global Campaign for Education-US, underscored the critical importance of moving beyond discussing equity to real action. Many of you have already responded to this call by making commitments to get involved in the Initiative. Whether you are a researcher, practitioner, or student, there is a role for you to be a part of achieving education equity for all.
Please check out highlights from the panels and other significant work that the Initiative has done over the past year below and make a commitment to use its tools and recommendations in your work.
We look forward to collaborating with you.
Carina Omoeva and Eric Eversmann,
Co-leads, Education Equity Research Initiative
