Elevating Student Voice Webinar Series
This collection of videos resulted from a webinar series that sought to highlight the range of ways in which school districts across New York State are elevating student voice in leadership roles to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. School and district leaders, educators, and students participated in this webinar series to share their stories of ways in which student leaders are impacting positive changes within their schools and broader communities. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) recognizes that elevating student voice is occurring in many districts across the state and this series seeks to enhance our understanding of the broad scope of ways in which adults are engaging in authentic partnerships with students as leaders in DEI efforts. Our hope is that sharing these practices will inspire future opportunities for student voice and leadership. This webinar series was developed through a coordinated effort among NYSED, the Region 2 Comprehensive Center, and the school and districts teams, including students, who shared their initiatives, successes, and ways they have addressed challenges in their paths toward creating inclusive and equitable schools for ALL.
