The Minority Leadership program prepares early career educators and emerging leaders to be powerful advocates for their students, their profession, and their local, state, and national unions.
Participants will learn how racial, economic, and social justice issues affect their school environments and learn strategies for organizing and activating members, parents, and community partners.
The curriculum includes leadership, coalition-building, and racial justice training grounded in diversity, inclusion and equity—providing critical knowledge and skills that will define each participant’s leadership journey as an anti-racist educator and change agent for dismantling racism in public education.
If selected, member leaders will be expected to participate in every component of the program. The commitment includes attendance at the MSEA MAC Leadership Cohort virtual or face-to-face trainings held three times during the 2021-2022 school year:
November 19-20, 2021 (virtual)
January 28-29, 2022 (virtual)
May 13-14, 2022 (in-person)
Deadline for application: October 25, 5:00 p.m.
