Equity in Education – Building Student Pathways to Economic Opportunity for All

October 24, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Despite a booming economy, the benefits of Massachusetts’ economic engine aren’t being shared equally, particularly in communities of color. What can our business, political and education leaders do differently to connect Black and Latino students to pathways to careers that our thriving life sciences, health, clean tech, and other sectors so urgently need to fill?

The Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education, in partnership with Latinos for Education and EdTrust Massachusetts, commissioned a series of interviews with a diverse array of leaders of color to gather their insights on how we can give our students a jumpstart on their future, close persistent equity gaps, and create a cooperative culture of success across our Commonwealth. At this event, we’ll hear from a panel of those leaders and invite some of Massachusetts’ top business and political leaders to react to their recommendations.

Join us on Tuesday, October 24th at the MCLE New England – 10 Winter Pl, Boston (Downtown Crossing), MA 02108 (in-person only).
