Skyline College will host its 3rd Bi-Annual Equity Summit on November 6, 2020 virtually through Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event offers an opportunity for educators from throughout the nation to engage in a teaching and learning experience centered on equity, race, and student success.
Bree Newsome Bass, Community Organizer and Activist, who first garnered national attention for her courageous act of civil disobedience in June 2015, will deliver the keynote address. The purpose of the summit is to immerse the educational community into the conversation about equity, race and student success through the scholarship of experts.
Presenters representing diverse perspectives and approaches regarding equity in education will deliver seven TED Talk-style presentations along with a plenary session throughout the day. Full biographies for all speakers can be found on the Equity Summit webpage.
