EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


From my colleague Steve Pearson at IBM:

Join IBM & mindSpark Learning for a limited-edition live webinar of Diversity and Inclusion in AI featuring guest presenters from Profound Gentlemen, a community of male educators of color.

Reflect on your own experience as you explore the roles of gender, race and bias in STEM fields. Learn how AI impacts the cradle to prison pipeline, and gain tools to instead build a cradle to career pipeline. Grow your toolkit with resources for diversifying your own computer science and STEM programs so that your students can gain awareness of how AI affects them and join the fight against algorithmic bias and injustice.

Register for the webinar on January 21 or January 25.
