Training Overview

Discover how to better support students of color. Learn tactics to help your students succeed.

Many educators have a 2022 goal to connect with and advocate for students of color. One solution will not work for all students. For example, the challenges that Black students face differ from those of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Latino students.

You need to develop a unique understanding and strategy for each subgroup of students and each individual. To help you accomplish this, we are offering a series of three information-packed and engaging webinars:
