Supporting Students in Overcoming Adversity: Agency, Justice, Equity

Videos of the plenary sessions will be available here soon.

Registration closed on October 8. Grantmakers for Education's 23rd annual conference will be held in New Orleans under the theme Supporting Students in Overcoming Adversity: Agency, Justice, Equity. We are taking inspiration from the students who lived through Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent overhaul of the education system. Local successes and challenges will stimulate national conversations about transforming education, from birth through postsecondary success. Drawing on brain science and the latest evidence, we will explore the social, emotional and academic dimensions of learning.

Our theme affirms the commitment in our community to equity of opportunity and outcomes for students, especially those who have experienced trauma, racial injustice and disability.
