diverse attendees at a deij symposium and job fair

Teach Away invites you to join us at our inaugural DEIJ Symposium and Job Fair! This virtual event will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2023 from 8am-1pm EST, and will feature a panel of DEIJ advocates in education, followed by a panel discussion.

At the Job Fair portion of the event, you’ll be able to network and introduce yourself to like-minded schools who share your values. This is a great opportunity to get a pulse on current DEIJ issues from knowledgeable experts and walk away with actionable solutions for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive playing field in education.

Why A DEIJ Symposium & Job Fair?

The critical role of DEIJ in education is undeniable. Creating an atmosphere of inclusivity and acceptance is integral to helping all learners reach their full potential. DEIJ initiatives help ensure that all students have equal access to educational opportunities and resources, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic background.

Teach Away is dedicated to engaging in meaningful conversations on making schools more welcoming and equitable for all educators and students – especially those who are underrepresented in the education system today.

We welcome all educators actively seeking teaching jobs to join our event, regardless of their race or ethnicity.

Meet The Speakers

We’re proud to have DEIJ advocates Fandy Diney Roser, Ceci Gomez-Galvez, Elisabet Raquel Garcia, Kam Chohan, and Adrienne Waller on board and join us for a discussion moderated by Teach Away’s VP of Sales, Lloyd Ffrench.
