Culturally Responsive Practice as a Strategy for Diversifying the Educator Workforce

National Center Logo

Did you know that greater racial diversity of educators can mitigate feelings of isolation, frustration, and fatigue that contribute to individual educators of color leaving the profession when they feel they are alone?

Did you know that research has shown that positive outcomes for all students increase when educators reflect the racial diversity of the student body?

Do you know how culturally responsive practices contribute to student success and a diverse, effective teacher workforce?

State and local education leaders are invited to join this Town Hall event featuring renowned researcher and educator, Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings, on the importance of culturally responsive pedagogy, practices, and culture in recruiting, preparing, retaining, and supporting a racially diverse educator workforce. Dr. Ladson-Billings will moderate conversations with a panel of youth of color who will share their experiences and insights to illuminate our understanding of the importance of having racially diverse educators. Audience members will have an opportunity to participate in this moderated session.
