Educational Attainment for All Diversity Conference

As a state committed to diversity and equity and the educational advancement of underrepresented students, we recognize not only the importance of academic performance and excellence, but also the consideration of factors that impede educational opportunity and success for first-generation, low-income, and historically underrepresented groups. To build a collective P-20 effort, the Washington Student Achievement Council held the first annual Educational Attainment for All Diversity Conference in April 2014 to extend networking and learning opportunities to statewide educators, policy makers and philanthropic communities. 

The Washington Student Achievement Council invites you to check our website for updates for the 2015 Educational Attainment for All Diversity Conference.
