Inaugural E3 Equity in Action Summit

3/23/2018 0 Comments

We were proud to host the inaugural E3 Equity in Action Summit, March 18-19, 2018, in partnership with St. Raphael School.  This interactive summit brought together educators, administrators, nonprofit and social service leaders, and students from across the country to experience the impact of E3's specialized tools in action. The summit offered an engaging experience of "equity in action" through first-hand visits to E3's demonstration sites.

We kicked off the Summit on Sunday evening, connecting in community through some of E3's community building processes, and listening and engaging in dialogue with scholar activists Brandon Nicholson of the Hidden Genius Project and Lorena Gonzalez of the Puente Project. The following day we spent doing site visits to an elementary school, high school, college and a social service agency, and discussed how each were addressing equity and engaging the E3 tools. After lunch, we shared E3's Equity Framework and spent some time in small group breakout sessions with featured speakers Jim Hogeboom (Novato Unified School District), Vielka Hoy (Bridge to College), Jesse Madsen (Marin County Office of Education) and Audra Williams (Lincoln).  We then worked in small groups to design equity action plans with concrete steps to implement directly following the Summit. 

Many thanks to all of our attendees and our E3 community!

E3 Goes to South Korea

12/7/2017 0 Comments

E3 was invited to speak at the 2017 Global Multi-Cultural Human Rights Forum in Suwon, South Korea in honor of United Nations Human Rights Day (December 10th). E3's Executive Director, JuanCarlos, shared the E3 tools and the concept of Cultural Resilience with the forum attendees (which was translated into Korean). What made this trip special was the level of inquiry and investment among many of the South Korean government officials to operationalize equity in action. 
E3’s vision of identifying the brilliance of every student has now reached five countries and been translated into five languages - the latest in Korean! As E3 continues to share our message and our tools across the globe, there is still work to be done locally. International trips such as this one validates and strengthens the vision that E3 has for every student.

E3 Goes to India

11/12/2017 0 Comments

In September, E3 traveled to New Delhi, India. E3's Executive Director, JuanCarlos, had a wonderful experience working with FEA India to explore the possibility of implementing E3's ESAT tool within FEA's program. FEA is an organization that serves disadvantaged youth to obtain skills and personal development to step into professional careers. They work with 18,000 students, ages 18-25. JuanCarlos made 6 site visits and worked with both FEA's students and FEA's leadership team. We are excited about the opportunity to continue to adapt E3's tools to an international context. 

We hope to return to India again next year to train the FEA teachers in how to implement the ESAT in their classrooms.
