Bringing Equity and Justice into Education

Topics: Future of Learning, Impact and Improvement, Overcoming Challenges, Systems Change

Communities of color have been finding new avenues of power and influence. Will community activism have a lasting impact? Or will established power structures persist?

KnowledgeWorks’ Gregory Seaton, senior director of impact and improvement joins Jason Swanson, director of strategic foresight, to discuss the issue of contested power from “Education in the Balance.”
Potential questions that may arise in the informal discussion include:
-What might the pandemic mean for established power and authority structures in learning?
-What might the impact of increased community activism be in education?
-How have events over the last year changed conversations about equity and justice in education?

Panelists will answer questions from the audience in a Q&A.
