Demand Diversity - a summit for educators and allies.
New York City public schools educate some of the most diverse students in the country - representing over 180 languages, households across the economic spectrum, and the full ethnic and racial diversity that makes up America.
Unfortunately, only 39 percent of New York’s teaching workforce reflects that diversity. As educators, we demand diversity in our teaching workforce that reflects the diversity of our students.
Every child deserves to see themselves in classroom leadership and gain the benefits of having an excellent educators from diverse backgrounds.
Join us for an evening of education, listening, and advocacy to make teacher diversity a priority in New York.
