Equity Symposium Series web header graphic with logo

Because the issue of equity is so critical to the health and safety of our schoolchildren, in 2021 NSBA expanded upon previous Equity Symposiums to create a series of events—to ensure that school leaders and our communities keep these issues top of mind to develop real and actionable best practices they can implement now, and to ingrain equity into our culture moving forward.

Register Today

The Equity Symposium Series started with an introductory online event in February of 2021, when more than 2,000 school leaders committed to educational equity and registered. In July 2021, NSBA hosted a summer online event that focused attention on actions school leaders can take to create safe and inclusive school environments. In January 2022 we are back in person and attendees can stay an additional few days in Washington, D.C. to attend the Advocacy Institute.

About Dismantling Institutional Racism in Education (DIRE)

As schools across the country responded to acts of systemic racism in the summer of 2020, NSBA launched the DIRE initiative to assist state school boards associations and other education leaders in addressing racial inequities. Learn more about DIRE.

Equity Councils

NSBA Councils offer unique opportunities for school board members and school leaders to get involved, strengthen their advocacy skills, and be part of a dynamic collaboration. Learn more, join a council, and be an active part of the solution for equity in our schools. Council members serve in an advisory capacity to the NSBA and promote quality education for all students with emphasis on the problems and successes of the students in their demographic area.
