Springboard Trust is thrilled to announce its 2020 learning event – Leading for Equity.
September 9-10, 1pm until 4:30pm
This year, COVID-19 has exacerbated some of the starkest inequities in our society. From device access to family income, the gap between those who have and those who have not is made all too clear under these conditions.
As an educational change organisation, Springboard Trust aims to set the standard for educational leadership that recognises these inequities, and builds strong practice to create fair and inclusive conditions for all.
This event will feature a range of speakers, focused on topics around equitable leadership in education and supporting all schools and communities:
Russell Bishop, Teaching to the North-East
Pasi Sahlberg, International perspectives on leading for equity
Laurayne Tafa, Equity as a measurement of leadership
Michelle Johansson, Advice for teachers of young brown scholars
Pete Jones, Maurie Abraham, Tom Davison, Secondary principals panel
Donal Maclean, Dealing with trauma - schools as safe spaces
We also have a panel featuring some of Springboard's corporate partners: Fonterra, Genesis and KPMG, as well as charitable trust KidsCan This session will give you the opportunity to learn more about cross-sector initiatives for schools and communities, and will include time for school leaders to share community partnerships they have developed.
