NewSchools Changes the Room at Summit 2014

September 11, 2008

We enlisted partner organizations to help identify more black and Latino participants and speakers at Summit. 26% of Summit attendees were people of color–up from 14% in 2013. These new voices changed the conversation in sessions and in the hallways resulting in more courageous conversations about race and class, more action diversifying leadership in ed reform and more efforts across many organizations to strengthen ties with the communities our work touches.
