EDUCATION ROUNDTABLE: HOW CAN SCHOOLS SUPPORT THE LEADERSHIP OF BLACK AND LATINX GIRLS
May 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Education Roundtable: How Can Schools Support the Leadership of Black and Latinx Girls
Thursday, May 27
1 PM PT/4 PM ET
Join us on Thursday, May 27, as we discuss what the Ready to Lead report means for teachers and administrators. The Ready to Lead report found that out of all ethnic groups, Black and Latinx girls were the most likely to say that having role models of the same race or ethnicity is very important. Yet more than 80% of the teaching force is White. Teachers of color have a significant positive impact on the leadership development of Black and Latinx girls, so how are schools recruiting and retaining them? How else can schools commit to cultural shifts to support Black and Latinx girls, who face teacher bias as a barrier to their leadership development? The panel will be moderated by Dr. Charlotte E. Jacobs, author of the Ready to Lead report and an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.
