MEETUPS

 The Education Ecosystem is EduLeaders of Color R.I. core program and consists of monthly meetups during the school year. All R.I. educators of color, as well as allies, are invited to the meetings.  The goal of these monthly meetups is to expand the social capital of education leaders of color while connecting them with community organizations and resources that they can utilize in their spheres of work.

The monthly meetups serve as a platform to empower, educate, and inspire leaders of color who are committed to creating transformational change in their communities.

OUR MODEL

1. Introduction

State your “why” and share your background

2. Share Your Work

Use multimedia or your voice to tell your story.

3. Call to Action

What should people do after hearing your presentation? How can people get involved?

4. Collective Ideation

An idea wants to be shared. In sharing, it becomes more complex, interesting, and more likely to work for more people. 

UPCOMING MEETUPS

We will see you in September 2020. We're taking the summer to redesign what our meetup will look like in the Fall to ensure safety for all our members.
