"The Ready to Lead report found that Black and Latinx girls were most likely to self-identify as leaders and scored highest on the leadership scale. But in school, teacher bias limits their leadership opportunities and they experience harsher disciplinary actions. With more than half of girls in the U.S. identifying as girls of color, it’s time for new policy and research that supports the leadership of Black and Latinx girls in schools. What kinds of changes need to happen at the local, state, and federal levels? How can policymakers take action now? Join us for a 75-minute panel discussion on Thursday, August 19, moderated by Patrice Berry, Executive Advisor, Oakland Mayor’s Office and Co-Founder, AssistHub. Panelists include Dr. Stephanie Wood-Garnett, President of the Institute for Student Achievement; Dr. K Shakira Washington, Vice President of Advocacy & Research at National Crittenton; and Mia Bonta, CEO of Oakland Promise."
