Charting Illinois’ Path to Racial Equity in Higher Education
December 8, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CST
Like many states, Illinois suffers from alarming racial achievement gaps in higher education, which we must address if we hope to achieve equity for all. Join Women Employed and education experts for an important conversation about the gaps that exist, the importance of addressing them, and how we can advance racial equity in higher education at a statewide level.
Women Employed’s President and CEO Cherita Ellens will share our latest policy recommendations and engage in a conversation with education leaders and policymakers about successful efforts and promising practices in other states, as well as the current outlook for racial equity efforts and plans in Illinois.
