Join us on Thursday, November 12 for our fall/winter series: Equity: Front, Center, and Fulfilled. We are pleased and honored to present Dr. Angela Ward. Profiled in Education Week as a 2019 Leader to Learn, Teaching Tolerance Magazine, Austin Woman’s Magazine and recipient of The Austin Area Urban League’s Founder’s Award, Dr. Ward manages the focus on Cultural Proficiency & Inclusiveness in a large urban school district and is motivated to study implications of the multiple relationships of education to culture, power, and society. In this role, she conducts research and collaborates to offer professional learning opportunities to implement a districtwide level of awareness and attention to issues of bias, bigotry, prejudice, discrimination and racism to eliminate disproportionality and disparities across the system. She directs, organizes and establishes systems and protocols for districtwide Restorative Practices and Culture and Climate innovation.
