Convening on Diversifying the Teacher Workforce

The Annual New Jersey Convening on Diversifying the Teacher Workforce is collaboratively hosted each fall by the NJACTE, the NJDOE, and one of the NJ college/university members of the NJACTE.  A planning committee with representation from each host institution selects a theme relevant to the broad topic of the convening and solicits presenters and a keynote speaker.  Each convening features a presentation by a representative from the NJDOE to highlight the state’s efforts in diversifying the teaching force.  This annual day-long convening aims to be a space where educators throughout the state can come together to share ideas and best practices, but also as an action-oriented platform to generate new ideas and policy initiatives.
