We believe in systems that promote equitable outcomes and excellence in education.
Educators of color need a shared, elevated voice and a stronger presence to help craft these types of strong accountability systems that we know ultimately lead to improved outcomes for students of diverse backgrounds. To make this happen, we engage and convene educators of colors with opportunities to fellowship, develop layers of mentorship, and explore leadership opportunities.
Our focus areas:
We are committed to ensuring educators of color are exposed to leadership opportunities locally and across the state and nation.
We believe that pre-service and in-service educators of color in Tennessee can benefit from exposure and mentorship from other educators of color. We are committed to bridging this gap.
Educators of color need spaces to convene socially, academically, and professionally. We are committed to ensuring that educators of color in Tennessee stay connected.
