Learning Ally's Spotlight on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Join us for this latest event in our Spotlight Learning Series!

Dr. Sherril English will discuss belonging in the era of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the foundational importance of literacy in achieving equity in disadvantaged populations. There will also be a panel discussion with Dr. Miriam Ortiz and Telissha Wesson.

Diversity, equity and inclusion are directly connected to the work and lives of teachers and especially to the lives of students of color and economically disadvantaged students. As classrooms of students have become more racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse, many educators have celebrated this richness of diversity as encouraging for students, their families, and entire school communities.

When diversity is valued by educators and reflected in their literacy curriculum, students are more inclined to develop a sense of inclusion and belonging to their school communities that can be inspiring, empowering, and unifying and that encourages students of color to take academic risks.
