WEBINAR: Rebuilding the Black Teacher Pipeline

The influence of Black teachers on Black students' academic trajectory is profound and backed by compelling research. The presence of Black teachers not only provides a sense of belonging and identity affirmation, but also offers diverse perspectives and approaches to learning that benefit all students. Recognizing and dismantling systemic obstacles, such as limited access to educational opportunities, biases in hiring practices, and inadequate support systems, becomes imperative when addressing how to create a diverse teacher workforce. Join the CEOs from the One Million Teachers of Color steering organizations who will address the impact Black teachers have on students, the barriers they face, and best practices to recruit and retain them.
