The Pennsylvania Educator Diversity Consortium (PEDC)
presents its 3rd Annual Virtual Educator Diversity Summit

Disrupt! Reimagine! Mobilize!

Strengthening Education by Diversifying the Educator Workforce in Pennsylvania


Dates: Tuesday, June 21, 2022, and Wednesday, June 22, 2022

Time: 8:30 am-2:30 pm

Feel free to join us at 8:15 am for Coffee, Conversation, and Connection


PEDCs 2022 Summit will engage members and invested partners in critical conversations about the future of educator diversity in Pennsylvania and identify actions needed to increase the number of ethnically, racially, linguistically, and both culturally relevant and sustaining educators and education systems in Pennsylvania.


The summit is free, all are welcome, and ACT 48 and other professional development credit will be available!


We convene invested partners to Disrupt, Reimagine, and Mobilize calling for action based on these key questions…

Disrupt. How can we explore, identify, and amplify what works in dismantling inequitable and unjust systems that hinder access, opportunity, and success for every learner and educator in Pennsylvania?

Reimagine. How can we envision, create, pilot, and scale new and innovative approaches that support an anti-racist education system where every educator in Pennsylvania is culturally relevant and sustaining, valued, respected, and embraced?

Mobilize. How can we mobilize collaboration across sectors for systems change to explore strategies, tools, and actionable steps needed to move the work forward?
