Save the date for equity, social justice conference

The Iowa Department of Education is hosting a virtual conference April 14 focusing on social justice and equity in education.

The conference is designed for educators, practitioners and industry experts to share best practices and to equip educators with research-based tools to promote the academic and social emotional learning for all students. The conference theme, 'From Conversation to Practice - A Call to Action,' is a culmination of the Department's ongoing webinar series going back to last fall.

There also will be a pre-conference April 13 that will provide training specifically targeting academic leadership in secondary and postsecondary, community-based and policy related decision-making roles.

In addition, the Department will soon be soliciting high-quality presentations from local and national presenters addressing social justice and equity in education.

Registration details as well as a call for proposals will be released soon.
