On Friday, November 16, 2018, Enid Lee will be the Keynote Speaker at the 24th Annual Multicultural Education Conference at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz.
This annual conference will bring together educators, parents, students, and community members to gather fresh insights and make connections with others who are working to create equitable schools that enable all young people to achieve.
Making Equity Work in Schools: A Pathway to Ensuring Leadership for Justice
This keynote presentation will focus on the power of equity-centered practices undertaken by educators in a variety of settings. Such practices reflect educators' everyday struggle to disrupt racism and other forms of oppression and to uncover the hidden human assets within the community, especially those of young people.
Educators will be encouraged to check their own systems for inequity and equity as they work to realize democratic schools where students prepare for and practice leading for justice.
