Wednesday Conversation - Guardians of Equity: A Conversation with School Leaders  

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215
Pedro Noguera, a nationally recognized voice on urban school reform, race and education, writes that a “ 'guardian for equity' means being an advocate for your children, being resourceful to meet the needs of your kids, and building strong ties with the community and your parents so that they, in turn, see the school as an asset and resource for the community" (2015). This panel of K-12 school leaders, who are Warner graduates, will discuss how they advocate for equity in their current roles, the experiences that shaped their leadership in this area and the most urgent equity issues they are currently facing. 
Moderated by Shaun Nelms, Superintendent of Educational Partnership Organization and William and Sheila Konar Director for the Center for Urban Education Success at the University of Rochester.  Alumni panelists include Callie Andler, Assistant Principal, Greece Olympia; Shalonda Garfield, Principal, Lincoln Park School No. 44, RCSD; Robert Hirsch, Principal, Franklinville Middle/High School; and Orlando Marrero, Assistant Principal, Greece. 

Pizza and salad will be served.  Please arrive early to get food, so we may start the panel at noon.
