Asian American Educators/Mentors Meet Up

Mar 6, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Students succeed when they have mentors that share their lived experiences. In the education field, Asian Americans are underrepresented and, at best, often an overlooked population of color. At worst, they are cast in the role of wedge around issues of educational equity, including affirmative action. We invite Asian American educators, administrators and others in K-12, nonprofit, for-profit, and higher education settings to discuss ways to elevate the visibility of Asian American educators and to promote interest convergence with our brown and Black allies and colleagues in education.
