Educators of Color SIG

The Educators of Color Special Interest Group (SIG) will provide a space for educators of color with common backgrounds, interests, and experiences to get together in order to build relationships, share ideas, and support each other.

We will use the opportunity to discuss existing efforts in our places of work, as well as explore possible activities that could be implemented to enhance the experiences for educators of color.

We will endeavor to connect with each other and share ideas around areas of common interest.
