Feedback form is now closed.
It in increasingly important for states to create and implement strategies to address educator diversity, particularly as they relate to teacher preparation, support and retention. In this session, presenters will first set the stage by sharing the national landscape, and then share concrete state strategies for addressing educator shortage and diversity, examining career connected learning, grow your own programs, potential equity indicators and the mentoring and retention of educators of color. All panelists will speak to the need to systematize outcomes in states and will highlight high-level and specific solutions for tackling these issues around the country, and will engage the audience to share their own strategies and challenges. Participants will leave with concrete takeaways that they can use in their states and programs.

Presenter(s): Alexandra Manuel, Darcy Pietryka, Cindy Stevens
