Join us for our upcoming webinar, Recruiting and Retaining a More Diverse Teaching Workforce, as we dive into one of the most important topics confronting today’s K-12 educational landscape. During the webinar, we will:

  • Uncover exclusive data from Education Week Research Center on teachers’ attitudes and behaviors around diversity in the classroom
  • Share exclusive data from Education Week Research Center on the extent to which K-12 districts prioritize an increasingly diverse educator workforce
  • Reveal the disconnect in many K-12 classrooms between the racial makeup of students and teachers, and why it matters
  • Hear from our panelists who will share insights on what it’s like to be a teacher and a principal of color
  • Learn effective strategies for recruiting and retaining a more racially diverse workforce
  • Have a Q&A to ask questions directly to each of our panelists
