One of the greatest challenges the global community faces is rising inequality, but there is limited information on the root causes and magnitude. Identifying and advancing solutions requires collaboration and shared commitment. The Education Equity Research Initiative confronts this challenge by combining efforts to move beyond a one-size-fits-all approach to education and toward more equitable strategies that recognize the needs of individual children.
Join us for an engaging discussion highlighting the latest progress the initiative has made in understanding and achieving education equity. This event will bring together practitioners and donors who are leading global and national efforts to establish standards and practices for measuring and addressing education equity. Featured speakers will discuss how to move toward greater understanding and accountability to ensure inclusive and quality education for all by 2030.
