Missing Voices


About Missing Voices

Each year the Culturally Responsive Teaching program hosts Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit which is a unique opportunity in the world of educational conferences. The conference is focused on bringing together youth, parents and educators to engage in dialogue and creative problem solving surrounding the inequities and gaps in our educational system. The program strives to bring multiple perspectives and stakeholders to the table, welcoming their wisdom and lived experience.  We believe that as educators, we cannot work in isolation if we desire true change and justice for our students. Participants in Missing Voices will experience a variety of participatory activities, dialogue, and expert keynotes as they are asked to collectively commit to action. Past keynotes have included Dr. Sharroky Hollie and Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings. View the video to see some highlights from the most recent conference.
