National Advancing Equity in Adult, Community College, and Career and Technical Education Symposium

October 31, 2016

REGISTER NOW!!

Registration and hotel accommodations are now available for the National Advancing Equity in Adult, Community College, and Career and Technical Education Symposium.

The National Advancing Equity in Adult, Community College, and Career and Technical Education Symposium will be held in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 31. This is ED’s first convening of external stakeholders around equity in adult, community college, and career and technical education.

The symposium will focus on the following five equity pillars: leadership and policy, performance accountability research and evaluation, innovation and improvement, social/cultural competency, and advocacy and awareness. Thought leaders in secondary, postsecondary, and adult education will engage to advance solutions on the issues of equity and access. Additionally, this symposium will provide an opportunity to inform more responsive policies and programs in career, technical, and adult education and at community colleges. 

The Advancing Equity community of practice has been established to share experiences, best practices, events, and other relevant information related to advancing equity in education. (See below for information on how to access the group.) Secondary, postsecondary, and adult education practitioners can collaborate virtually to promote increased access, opportunity, and success for all learners.
