This year's virtual Equity pre-conference and conference digs deep into timely, relevant, thought-provoking interactive sessions that look at educational equity to help close the achievement gaps for all students in Arizona.


This experience aims at taking you and your board from a deeper understanding of equity to strategic action and impact.


Equity Pre-Conference - Wednesday, April 21
Latinx AZ:  Experiences, Impact, Influence and Inclusion

From culture to commerce, Latinos have been essential to making Arizona what it is today. The success of Latino students and their families will determine who and what we will become as a state. Join us for a multifaceted look at Arizona’s largest student population and the factors that are influencing their education and futures. Topics include the state of Latino education, cultural and economic influences, public policy and historical trauma, and outreach, engagement and representative leadership.


Equity Conference - April 22-23
Since the founding of The Equity Event seven years ago, we have unwrapped the many influences, characteristics and circumstances that impact our students and contribute to gaps in opportunity and outcomes, among them family income, access to food and shelter, physical and cognitive ability, gender and gender identity, immigration status, and even the location of the student’s home and the district itself. Culture, race and ethnicity intersect with all those factors and are woven deeply into the lives of each and every student we serve. The heightened local, state and national dialogue around racial equity compels us as leaders to look at race more deeply. At this year’s Equity Event, we’ll investigate these rich, human aspects of our students and ourselves so that we can serve every student well and justly moving forward. Featuring Arizona poet laureate Alberto Rios and a special reading of his poem “A House Called Tomorrow.”
