In support of ESSA, districts are working to create environments in which all students can succeed and thrive in school no matter who they are, where they live, where they go to school, or where they come from.

In support of this work, we are inviting educators from across the region to participate in a conversation around educational equity and the role implicit bias has on student agency and empowerment.

About Dr. Marks

As the founding Director of the National Training Institute on Race and Equity and a professor in the Department of Psychology at Morehouse College, Dr. Marks' personal and professional mission is to develop the knowledge, wisdom and skills of others that will allow them to reach their full potential and live their lives with purpose and passion.

From Wayne-Finger Lakes Regional Leader, Jay Roscup: “ There is no better speaker to provide an engaging, organized presentation that can be brought back to districts in a clearly articulated turnkey presentation. Dr. Marks moves people past misunderstanding and social stigma and builds foundational concepts for equity without shame or guilt. Our students need us to possess and operationalize the concepts Dr. Marks communicates.”
