Save-the-Date: Black Men Educators Convening – Nov 17-19

Posted by The Center for Black Educator Development on June 7, 2022

The Center for Black Educator Development is thrilled to bring you the Black Men Educators Convening #BMEC2022 on November 17th through 19th, 2022. The convening will begin with a welcome reception in the evening on Thursday, November 10th and continue through Saturday, November 12th with workshops, panel discussions, healing, building, networking, and fireside chats.

#BMEC2022 is returning to a live experience in Philadelphia, PA. We are looking to transform the education sector by recruiting, retaining, supporting, and activating more Black men to support and lead the work of revolutionizing the educational system.

We are excited and honored to build upon BMECs that began on Philly on October 1, 2015, continued through our Virtual Convening in November 2021, and years of our work convening, supporting, and organizing Black men through The Fellowship: Black Male Educators for Social Justice.

Through #BMEC2022, we are continuing our tradition of educational activism, professional development, and organizing by convening Black men educators and those who support them to build community with each other through tactical thoughts, words, and actions that will help us to collectively change the lives of students and the school communities in which we serve. Our orientation is to lean and stand on the shoulders of our giants and heroes so that we may lift as we climb.

This in-person convening will have live sessions (some recordings will be available on-demand), that will provide participants with a unique, communal, and empathetic space to discuss the deep emotional, intellectual, and trajectory-altering work that revolutionary Black men educator-activists do day-to-day.

Our empowering agenda of speakers, panel discussions, and workshops (which we’ll share soon!) will inform, inspire, and activate Black men educators and others in the educational ecosystem to continue leading with humility and courage.

Current and aspiring educators, researchers, parents, students, and thought leaders will provide practical tools and feedback to continue revolutionizing education in classrooms, while changing lives and perspectives.

Attendees will also gain access to a wide network of Black men educators that will empower, uplift, and fuel the recruitment, support, and retention of the next generation of Black men educators and the students they are committed to leading.

Registration link coming soon.

Registration Cost:  Early Bird – $180; Regular Admission – $200
