Diversifying the Educator Workforce (DEW) meetings focus on strategies that increase underrepresented candidates in the educator workforce and grow the next generation of educators.
This event, co-hosted by PESB and The Gates Foundation, will focus on growing our own educators through Recruiting Washington Teachers (RWT) teacher academies. The RWT program has the overarching goal of growing diverse future teachers, who more closely reflect the population of Washington’s students, by introducing high school students to what a career in education looks like and the importance of their role in the future of education. This event will include discussions of the impact of culturally responsive teaching academies, the launching of the new RWT professional development, the design of innovative RWT programs, and breakout sessions lead by current RWT teachers and higher education partners.
