OCTAE 2023 Equity Summit Webinar Series

Equity in Career Connected Education: Advancing Economic Mobility

Equality Graphic

On behalf of Assistant Secretary Dr. Amy Loyd, we invite you to participate in the Office of Career Technical and Adult Education’s (OCTAE) 2023 Equity Summit Webinar Series entitled Equity in Career Connected Education: Advancing Economic Mobility

On February 2, 2022, OCTAE held the 2022 Advancing Equity in Career-Connected Education Summit(Summit). This event was an important component of the Department of Education’s efforts to implement Executive Order 13985, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. One of the goals of the Summit was to identify themes and topics across those issue areas for further exploration, such as data, state or local roles, the role of industry, or existing systemic challenges such as misaligned incentives in adult education, career technical education, community colleges, and correctional education.

Based on what we learned from the Summit, OCTAE is hosting a series of equity webinars focusing on topics such as dual enrollment, Second Chance Pell, digital literacy, and career pathways.  The fourth in the series will be held on June 27, 2023, at 2:00 pm ET. This webinar will focus on Economic Mobility for LGBTQ+ Youth.
