“Collaborating digitally in these COVID-19 times is so important for individual well-being, collective solidarity, and professional growth.”
-Meetup attendee

  • Are you committed to finding solutions that'll improve our education system?

  • Do you want to support a community of educators and leaders across the state of Rhode Island and beyond?

  • Are you interested in meeting and connecting with like-minded leaders and educators who are working to build a diverse workforce?

According to Dr. Joycelyne Elders, America’s first Black female surgeon general, “You can’t educate a child who isn’t healthy, and you can’t keep a child healthy who isn’t educated.” This month, our EduLeaders of Color R.I. meetup will focus on engaging deeply with the intersection between health, science, and education. We’re excited to feature inspirational individuals working to develop the next generation of doctors, scientists, and STEM professionals.

Do you want to connect with movers and shakers who are committed to racial equity?
Are you interested in learning about practical approaches to addressing barriers to opportunities for BIPOC youth?
Do you need a space to simply vibe with good people?

Join us on March 24th!

Our meetups provide a space where you can do all of the above. We convene BIPOC teachers, administrators, professionals, and community members to support and cultivate meaningful, cross-sectoral interactions that promote and support the development of anti-racist communities. While this event does center on the experiences of BIPOC communities, people from all backgrounds are welcome to attend.
