Don’t Miss Our Upcoming Virtual Spring Convening!

It has been 70 years since Thurgood Marshall argued, and won, the landmark Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KS, 1954 (Brown) decision before the United States Supreme Court declaring the “separate, but equal” doctrine illegal. Significant legal challenges have begun to dismantle Brown in some states, and California is not immune. Our state has seen legal challenges to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in both K-12 and higher education.

This virtual Convening begins with a national overview of how we came to our current circumstances and continues with an examination of equity and DEI in California. This event concludes with insights from everyday middle leaders on what the conversation means for us in our roles, and how we continue the work to overcome our nation’s legacy of educational equity gaps in an especially fraught national moment.

This event is co-sponsored by the California State University Office of the Chancellor.
