Diversity in the Educator Workforce

Diversity in the Educator Workforce

The following series is presented by the four Equity Assistance Centers to address the priority in K-12 education to ensure the workforce reaches more levels of diversity. Each center created a course with a different area of this priority and will provide an overview and content that will share guidance and resources for schools, districts, and state departments to help improve in this process.

The courses are housed in the WEEAC Virtual College which is an online learning format designed for educators to participate in workshops that increase awareness in equity related topics. These courses will be self-paced and free of charge to all participants. The content aligns with the mission of the Equity Assistance Center grant funded by the United States Department of Education. Upon completion of each course, participants will receive an electronic certificate of completion from the Metropolitan State University of Denver Innovative and Lifelong Learning Department.
