Connecticut Convention Center, Hartford, CT
A conference designed for educators, family members, community members, business leaders and everyone who plays a part in a child’s life.
The 5th annual conference on Dismantling Systemic Racism, sponsored by the State Education Resource Center (SERC) in collaboration with the SERC Foundation, focuses on ways to support, promote, and develop racial equity in education. The conference supports educators, families, and community leaders to better serve Connecticut’s students and their families, through advocacy and the development, implementation, and sustainability of innovative, culturally relevant programming. In order to eliminate racially predictable outcomes, the focus is on all students, but particularly Black and Brown students, as well as students learning English and students with disabilities.
This Call for Presenters is intended to solicit dynamic, thought-provoking presentations that will address the multifaceted ways that race and systemic racism impede our students’ outcomes and limit opportunities for success in academics, social development, health, and family engagement. Proposals should relate to the conference theme of Race, Education and Success and will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
It is anticipated that up to 1,000 people will participate in this full-day conference. Participants may include general and special educators, administrators, students, family members, community members, business leaders, and all who play a role in a child’s life.
Each breakout session will be 90 minutes long.
Proposals are due by January 3, 2020.
A collaboration of SERC and the SERC Foundation
