About this episode: Advancing Equity in Postsecondary Education

The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis have highlighted the crucial role that community colleges play as engines of economic mobility. To meet this unprecedented moment, California Community College Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley is championing large-scale, systemic change in the nation’s largest community college system through a bold plan to close racial equity gaps and improve outcomes.

Join JFF, Chancellor Oakley, and Executive Vice Chancellor Marty Alvarado (formerly of JFF!) for a conversation about responding to the pandemic, the changing nature of education, and the radical steps they are taking to build an equitable and resilient community college system in California.

You’ll leave the interactive discussion understanding how they are:

  • Challenging some of postsecondary education’s “sacred cows
  • Changing mindsets, conditions, and behaviors to achieve wholesale reform
  • Issuing a call to action imploring leaders to actively work for equity, inclusion, and social justice

About the Series

Building on the Horizons experience, we’re launching a free monthly webinar series called “It Started at Horizons.” For each episode, we’ll be inviting diverse leaders in education and workforce development to join JFF experts for conversations about topics such as the future of work and learning, the challenge of responding to the COVID-19 crisis, and the need to increase racial equity and improve access to economic opportunity.
