Exploring education equity pathways: A career conversation
Interested in launching your career in service to others? Passionate about educational equity, but not sure what pathways lead to an education and social justice career?
Calling all upcoming college grads! You’re invited to Reading Partners’ upcoming panel: “Exploring education equity pathways: A career conversation.” Hear from educational equity leaders about their journeys into the education space, how their identities play into their experiences, and so much more.
Join Reading Partners for a lively conversation with Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) servant leaders working within the education and social justice fields.
From teaching to public policy to EdTech, hear from our diverse panelists about their academic and professional journeys, their experiences navigating their identity within the education field, and what they wished they had known as new graduates ready to make their mark on the world. You’ll walk away with actionable career guidance from seasoned leaders, have the chance to ask your own questions of panelists, and learn more about an AmeriCorps service term with Reading Partners.
