EC Opportunities @ 2019 GFE Conference
Grantmakers for Education, 2019 Annual Conference
Supporting Students in Overcoming Adversity: Agency, Justice, Equity
October 22-24, 2019, New Orleans
Grantmakers for Education’s 23rd annual conference will be held in New Orleans under the theme Supporting Students in Overcoming Adversity: Agency, Justice, Equity. GFE is taking inspiration from the students who lived through Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent overhaul of the education system. Local successes and challenges will stimulate national conversations about transforming education, from birth through postsecondary success. Drawing on brain science and the latest evidence, the conference will explore the social, emotional and academic dimensions of learning. This theme affirms GFE’s commitment in our community to equity of opportunity and outcomes for students, especially those who have experienced trauma, racial injustice and disability.
GFE Conference Registration Opens in July.
