In October 2010 we hosted an event to celebrate our new name and look and explore some key questions about education, equity, community, and leadership.
Over 200 teachers, principals, administrators, nonprofit staff, policymakers, philanthropists and others joined us to learn about the changes at The National Equity Project, and hear the compelling stories and ideas of a wide range of education leaders at every level, through our new video featuring three leader stories, our keynote and moderator, and our panel of five education leaders.
