GRANTMAKERS FOR EDUCATION 2016 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Equity in Education: Conversations We’re Not Having
No matter where education philanthropists are working, or what they are working on, in different ways we all aspire toward a future where outcomes for all learners improve. ALL learners.
This year we focus on equity: what actions we are taking and how our actions really affect equity as we face a changing philanthropic and social landscape.
We are surrounded by the broader political, social and economic tensions currently at play. If we do not name these tensions they hide in the shadows; they become conversations we’re not having. Going forward, leaders in the field must be brave enough to shine light on these issues.
The 2016 Grantmakers for Education Conference—Equity in Education: Conversations We’re Not Having—is a forum for “undiscussable” topics, an opportunity to bring them out of the shadows.
This is our chance to examine the leadership role that education philanthropy can take in communities across the country to lead conversations and identify concrete actions that move us toward an inclusive, equitable future for all.
Be a leader and a learner. Join us in this compelling program that pushes boundaries, challenges assumptions and capitalizes on the diversity of perspectives across the field.
