Equity in Education: Reimagining Education through a Diverse Lens

What happens when a diverse group of parents and thought leaders reimagine K-12 education? How might we transform schools to look and feel more welcoming – and more meaningful – for today’s culturally diverse students? 

Join us as we explore ways to end “business as usual” in public education and discuss education through racially and culturally diverse perspectives.

Panelists include:

  • Markus Flynn, Executive Director, Black Men Teach
  • Patty Reyes, Robbinsdale parent
  • Carolina Cavillo, School Climate and Culture Specialist Robbinsdale Area Schools
  • Susan Beaulieu, Extension Educator for the University of Minnesota Extension 

The event will be moderated by Jake Sturgis, Founder and CEO of Captivate Media.
