January 2017

January’s meetup focuses on social entrepreneurship and features two new social ventures, F.E.E.D. and Diversity Talks.

F.E.E.D.: The Fellowship for Educators for Equity and Diversity, or F.E.E.D. for short, is a recently formed organization dedicated to recruiting and retaining teachers from underrepresented backgrounds.

Diversity Talks: Diversity Talks aims to promote student-led professional development for teachers that focuses on issues of identity and equity in education.

Both organizations were featured in the EdSurge article “Desperately Seeking: Culturally Relevant Ideas and Innovation in Education” (https://www.edsurge.com/news/2016-10-03-desperately-seeking-culturally-relevant-ideas-and-innovation-in-education)

We hope you will join us for an evening of food, drinks, great company, and powerful insights.
