10:45 – 12:00 PM Equity Leadership and Policy Initiatives: Next Steps
There is a fundamental disconnect between the policies designed to serve all gifted students in our state, and those historically disenfranchised within the system by race, ethnicity, culture or language. Guest speakers from the University of Washington College of Education and across the country are invited to engage in discussions facilitated by our faculty related to access and equity to highly capable programs and services in the state of Washington.
Goals for Equity Summit on Gifted Education
- Gain a better understanding of equity as it relates to gifted education.
- Bring communities together to share equity initiatives, and gain awareness of what is currently happening, both in this state and around the country to address equity in educational systems.
- Develop ongoing partnerships and collaborations to challenge inequitable policies, procedures, and practices through education, leadership and advocacy for change.
The Robinson Center’s goal is to bring communities of people together from across the country, as well as across the state to discuss these important challenges facing our system in public education.
