Event description

California Teachers Association is proud to sponsor the third Joint Ethnic Caucus Issues Conference at the Marriott Hotel in Manhattan Beach.

The theme, “Be Proud, Be United, Be Engaged for California Public Schools,” reflects the strength of diversity in promoting the quality of life for everyone. This conference will provide participants with more knowledge of issues facing our ethnic minority communities and how to advocate for change.

Main Conference Highlights

The conference is devoted to enhancing CTA members’ understanding and appreciation of the issues of diversity and equity and is open to all CTA members. Attendees are able to choose from a wide variety of workshops that provide practical ideas that can be incorporated in the classroom and school setting. The workshops will also provide participants with more knowledge of issues facing our ethnic minority communities and how to advocate for change.

Conference highlights include a Friday evening Mix and Mingle where participants will have an opportunity to network. On Saturday, participants will have an opportunity to choose from at least 20 workshops on a variety of social and educational issues. There will be a dynamic guest speaker on Saturday who will share insight and perspective about the opportunities and challenges facing our ethnic minority communities.

On Sunday, participants will also have an opportunity to share their ideas and concerns at the Dialogue Sessions “Issues to Planning” and “Planning to Action.” The Conference will conclude with a General Session where the participants will share what was discussed and keys to successful change.

The Joint Ethnic Caucus Issues Conference provides an atmosphere for genuine interaction among colleagues on topics of special interest. You are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities provided to network with like-minded individuals and to discuss relevant social issues.
