Missing Voices


What is the “Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit”?

Most educational conferences are provided as an opportunity for only educators. However, multiple perspectives are missing in that conversation. Our goal is to bring all voices together, moving from discussion to action. Through collaboration focused on equity, the Graduate School of Education Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit brings together educators, students, families and community members. When missing perspectives are intentionally included, our community is bound to be more creative in our solution-making and increase the opportunity to collectively improve the future.

What do participants gain from the Missing Voices Summit?

Throughout the day, participants have the opportunity to learn strategies, identify new resources, experience creative expression, engage in dialogue and intentional networking, and commit to individual action toward solutions to make our schools more equitable.
