This summer, the Rennie Center is hosting a series of informational conversations and informal networking for entry-level and temporary/part-time staff members at organizations working in Massachusetts education. We hope this network will empower young professionals, particularly young professionals of color, as they build social capital, make connections, and promote access to opportunity and retention within the education field—a predominantly white space. Our aim is to help build a more diverse pipeline of education leaders across the state and cultivate a community that pushes our thinking and actions towards positive, meaningful change.
The network will host a series of biweekly virtual meetings on Wednesday afternoons throughout the summer, open to all entry-level, temporary, and part-time staff, as well as any young leaders interested in learning more about the education landscape in Massachusetts. These meetings will take place on Zoom from 4:00 to 5:00 on July 1, July 15, July 29, August 12, and August 26. This opportunity is free for all participants.
