WMEP Think Tank
Unity is strength. The Think Tank provides a unified and collaborative way to share ideas, fine-tune those ideas, and turn them into actions using the strength of multiple perspectives. It’s a place to problem solve, a place for equity leaders to gather and grow around the conversation of equity, and a place of transformation and direction. It’s a place to birth new approaches, to convene new programs, report and reflect on successes and challenges, and recharge.
The role of the Think Tank is diverse, and its use could be fluid according to regional needs. It’s a place for equity teams to mobilize, strategize, and share resources. It’s a place to make things happen.
The ultimate goal of the Think Tank is to provide systemic transformation to create educational equity, build authentic relationships, and accelerate learning and change.
