Leadership for Equity Through Positive Relationships

60 Minutes

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, 2020 was tough. There are lots of lingering questions, including: What role do schools play in the lives of children in the “new normal”?

In this edWebinar, we focus on how school and district leaders can encourage and foster positive relationships amongst teachers, students, and the community. We also examine the relationship between equity and social and emotional learning.

Viewers will walk away with concrete strategies to promote equity, build positive relationships, and support teachers and students. We hope you’ll watch Venola Mason from the International Center for Leadership in Education for this exciting event.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
