On February 22-26, 2016, a panel of experts will address key questions surrounding Hispanics in the workforce, during an online discussion. Also, discussions will center around the need to help Hispanics benefit from career pathways programs and move into mid-level skills careers.

The Carreras en Salud partnership will be introduced as a successful career pathways program for entry into various healthcare industries. Additionally, an exploration of opportunities to expand and adapt the model to other career training programs will be discussed during the online ‘summit’.

LINCS Diversity and Literacy and Career Pathways groups kick off on February 22nd.

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnerships between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I tell truths rarely explored-to both educators and families. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
