Equity Webinar August 6: Are You Listening?
Date PostedAugust 1, 2020
As your board of education navigates how to address COVID-19 as well as the national crisis calling out inequities and injustices, the next IASB webinar, “Are You Listening? Promoting Equity through Student Voice at the Board Table” covers the timely topic of student voice.
Have you engaged your student leaders in the decision-making process? Research shows that student voice is more than making students feel important and giving them a seat at the table; it is an approach to school improvement that creates relevant, meaningful, and productive student engagement.
Latonya Simelton, Oswego SD 308 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Coordinator, and representatives from the SD 308 Board of Education will discuss their journey in magnifying student voices around equity and inclusion, and discuss steps your district can take to promote student voice at the board table.
This free Zoom webinar is offered as a benefit of IASB membership and takes place at 1 p.m. on Thursday, August 6. Registration is available via the IASB Events Calendar.
