Description

CONCURRENT SESSION OVERVIEW 

Join your colleagues for the inaugural Pathways to Equity conference. This year, the conference will be a one-and-a-half day long virtual event, bringing together a diverse community of college practitioners and students to discuss the implementation of the Guided Pathways framework with an equity lens.

Now is the time to actively strategize and take action against structural racism. The virtual event will focus on how colleges are embedding anti-racist strategies in our equity-minded Guided Pathways work. Hear from Chancellor’s Office leadership, an inspiring featured session and attend breakout sessions designed to provide actionable takeaways for college teams. Join your colleagues to celebrate your work and discuss how equity-focused support, teaching and learning improves student outcomes.

We must support each other and share positive outcomes during this unique time. It is critical for our students that we maintain passion for the equity work ahead
