Strategy Session: Leveraging the Science of Learning & Development to Advance Equity & Excellence

Updated: 15 hours ago


Education is a cornerstone of our democracy and essential to young people’s opportunity to thrive and to our nation’s prosperity. Yet each day, young people in America, particularly BIPOC (Black, indigenous, and other people of color) young people, face the challenge of learning and developing within education systems that were not designed with them in mind and that perpetuate deep structural racism and other forms of oppression. How can we use the key findings from the science of learning and development to explore this context and organize our individual and collective efforts as education field leaders to dismantle racism and cultivate the relationships, environments, experiences, and cultures necessary for all young people to thrive?


The Strategy Session, powered by the SoLD Alliance, are monthly virtual “field calls” that provide leaders a regular opportunity to share information, learn about new opportunities, and explore critical topics in learning and development with a focus on applying the science and an equity lens to our individual and collective efforts to ensure thriving for all young people.
