Equity and Diversity Resources on ELN

By Arlin Peebles posted 02-02-2021 11:57 AM

Equity and diversity in education is an important topic for us here at Ed Leaders Network. We believe this work to be fundamental in the education of our children and the future of our country. To that end, we have put together some helpful resources on how to bring equity and diversity into your learning communities. The live webinar recordings below are publicly available on YouTube. The on-demand courses are available on our Ed Leaders Network learning management system, which public educators in Illinois can access for no charge through our partnership with the Illinois State Board of Education.
